Description
 
This is such a fun fabric. Large shibori blossoms - at least one but likely two per yard - float against a puckered shibori background in a pale peach color. Japanese red (which has an orange cast), orange and bright yellow are the accent colors on the flowers. See video below for how shibori is done.

This listing is for one yard of vintage fabric salvaged from a vintage Japanese kimono. Multiple pieces may be 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.
