This bolt of fabric is unused, old stock and is in perfect shape. It can be used for a formal wrap, home accessories or clothing accessories. The silk can also be used to create clothing but please remember that Kimono fabric is not as wide as modern fabrics.

Although this silk bolt does not have its original paper label I believe that it is Oshima tsumugi silk.

Oshima tsumugi is highly regarded and is used for high quality kimono. It is a lightweight silk. It is masterfully created using pre-dyed threads that are then woven (kasuri) to create the pattern in the fabric. Unlike other kasuri patterns, Oshima tsumugi patterns have crisp, tidy edges (not blurry). Oshima tsumugi is known for its natural dyes. Typical of tsumugi silks, the warp and weft threads are different colors.

Oshima tsumugi has a crisp drape, is resistant to wrinkles and has a subtle sheen. Unlike other tsumugi fabrics, Oshima tsumugi has a smooth texture.

This silk has an amazing pattern of peony and vines in hues of red, yellow and white over a black background. This pattern is called "karaku-sa".

The pattern on this fabric is woven therefore both sides of the fabric have an identical (although reversed) design.

The 5th photo shows the fabric with Crayola brand crayons for color comparison.

*I am always willing to provide more information or pictures regarding my fabrics or using/sewing these fabrics. Please do not hesitate to send me a convo if you have any questions.*

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 fabric has not been laundered so it could have a slight storage smell however, I do not notice any. This is a vintage fabric therefore there could be small stains or flaws that go unnoticed at my time of inspection.
