Vintage Japanese tsumugi earth tone abstract silk - by the yard

$12.00


This listing is for 1 yard and 17  inches (53 inches or 134.6 cm) of fabric. The fabric is a continuous piece with no cuts.

This beautiful fabric is vintage, unused stock and is in "like new" condition. The fabric is crisp and has a stiff drape. This fabric would be perfect for creating a quilt or home decor items. It can also be used to create a formal scarf or accessory.

This silk fabric has a woven abstract pattern in colors of ocher, maroon, brown, tan and dark navy/black. Typical of tsumugi, this fabric is has a wonderful texture and has slubbing.  Tsumugi is created out of pre-dyed threads. The warp and weft threads are different colors (called shot fabric) giving the fabric a wonderful depth of color. Traditionally the weft threads of tsumugi are black. The colors are very dynamic because of the different colored warp and weft threads. The last photo shows the colors most accurately. Crayola brand crayons were place in the photo for color comparison.

I believe that the pictures show a good representation of the fabric colors however, please remember that colors may look different on your monitor. This is a vintage fabric so there may be small blemishes or marks in addition to those described. This fabric has been stored for many years and may have a slight storage smell, although I do not notice one. Fabric can be hung, outside, in the shade to remove storage smell.
