Description
 
"Star-crossed" Woman's Kimono

You'll find tiny blue or white squares where the vertical and horizontal lines meet, and they look like stars to us....

The ikat fuzziness of the lines makes them seem like brushstrokes.

Pink background with black, blue, cream, and gray. A few spots of very slight discoloration on the back, see photo.

Ikat (also called kasuri) is a centuries-old method of weaving where the threads are dyed before being woven, so that the design appears on the loom. Ikat is a very labor-intensive textile art form, still very much revered in Japan and elsewhere. See the amazing process in the video below.
