Description
 
This listing is for one yard of vintage fabric salvaged from a vintage Japanese woman's juban (underkimono).

It is a light, crepe silk with an angled diagonal band pattern in red, white, pink, and a light blue-green.

The standard width of kimono fabric is between 13" and 14" but this yardage is slight more narrow - 12" - which is typical of kimono made in the 1950s or earlier. Each length offered here is at least 36" - some are more generous cuts.

When we find vintage (circa 1950s but could be older or newer by two decades) Japanese kimono in less-than-sellable condition due to fading, blemishes, or holes, we salvage what we can and offer it to artisans, quilters, crafters, and designers for project work.

So the fabric has been previously sewn and though we carefully deconstruct the kimono, previous seam lines, as well as minor blemishes, may need to be worked around or trimmed away. The inspiring designs, hand work, and the ageless beauty of vintage Japanese textiles make all the extra work so worthwhile.
