Description
 
This listing is for a single yard of vintage Japanese kimono fabric.

This yardage is a shibori silk in bright red and white. The cloud pattern covers the entire panel, and the geomentric jacquard of the silk is visible in the border between the clouds. The clouds are filled with kaneko (fawn spot) shibori dots. We don't often get red shibori....

The standard width of all kimono fabric is between 13" and 14" and 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 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.
