Vintage, variegated purple and pink toned woven, tsumugi silk kimono fabric - by the yard

Sorry, this item has sold.

This listing is for one yard (36 inches or 91.33cm) of fabric. There are multiple yards available. If more than one yard is purchased then you will receive the entire yardage as one complete length. Please note that if you order a large number of yards the shipping cost may be overestimated. I always refund shipping overages of $1.00 or more.

This beautiful, silk fabric is unused, old stock and would make an amazing scarf, hair accessory, throw pillow cover or boro quilt. It can be used for apparel but please remember that kimono fabric is not as wide as other fabrics. It is in excellent condition with no staining. This fabric has been laundered and air dried.

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. This silk has weft threads that are in hues of purple, pink-purple, indigo, blue and white. The warp threads are a pale lavender color. The colors have a beautiful depth to them 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. Please enlarge the photos to see the wonderful texture and color of the silk.

In addition to the stripes the silk has a "wave" or "wood grain" pattern about every 8 inches (20.32cm). This can be seen in the fourth photo.

This fabric also has a crisp texture and slightly stiff drape that is similar to a dupioni silk. Although this fabric is crisp it has a warmer feel than meisen silk or dupioni silk. It has slight texture due to the weaving and has minimal "slubbing". This silk has a slight sheen.

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 item so there may be small blemishes or marks in addition to those noted in the description. This item has been stored for many years so there may be a slight storage smell although I do not notice one.
