Silk furisode kimono fabric panel - orange and white floral shibori

$30.00

This beautiful silk fabric was part of an unfinished furisode kimono. The furisode kimono is traditionally worn by young, unmarried women and is one of the most beautiful and decorated kimono. This silk was basted together into the kimono form but was not finished. Because of this the fabric is excellent condition EXCEPT for tiny pinholes and creases.

These silk panels are perfect for creating home accessories, formal wraps or even quilts.

The entire panel is about 84 inches (213.4 cm) long. The panel is about 13.5 inches (34.2 cm) wide. The width of the panel varies due to the shibori. This panel has no cuts in it (as many panels from finished kimono often do) and was the sleeve of the kimono.

The entire panel can be seen in pictures 2 through 4 as it was too long to fit into one photograph.

Wonderfully textured shibori covers this entire panel of kimono silk. The shibori was created on white rinzu (damask) silk. The silk's woven floral and geometric pattern can be seen when the light reflects off it's surface. Flowers were created out of the shibori and dyed a tangerine orange and pink-orange color. The last two photos show the color of the silk most accurately. Crayola brand crayons were placed in the photo for color comparison.

The silk is a light to medium weight with a slight sheen. The shibori gives it a wonderful texture and it has a nice, although slightly stiff, drape.

Please enlarge the photos to see the wonderful color and shibori accents on this panel. This panel will be shipped in a box so that the shibori will not be crushed.

*Shipping cost overages greater than $1.00 will be refunded*

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 not been laundered so it could have a slight storage smell, although I do not note any.
