Description
 
Wonderfully complicated ikat design of florals and rectangles in beautiful shades of green, which is a fairly uncommon color in kimono. Just a touch of light blue, yellow, red and spring green accent the design. A smooth, crisp silk. See the video below for more on the ikat technique.

This listing is for one yard of fabric salvaged from a vintage Japanese kimono. (Multiple pieces may be available and if ordering two yards, continuous yardage will be sent IF it is available.)

When we find vintage (circa 1950s but could be older or newer by two decades) Japanese kimono or haori (kimono jackets) 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.
