Vintage, deep green wool silk blend kimono fabric with tortoise shell kikko pattern - by the yard

$8.50


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, wool blend fabric is unused, old stock and would make an amazing cushion cover, table runner 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. This fabric has not been laundered.

This fabric was created for a haori and kimono ensemble. It has a woven pattern of tortoise shells (kikko). The tortoise shell is an auspicious pattern that represents longevity. The pattern is created out of pale blue and pale yellow threads that are woven through a deep green background. Please note that either side of the fabric can be used. The reverse side has the same pattern however the colors are reversed. The last photo shows the colors most accurately. Crayola brand crayons were placed in the photo for color comparison.

The weft of this fabric is:
68% wool
16% silk
16% synthetic, most likely Nylon

The warp of this fabric is:
100% synthetic, acrylic


This fabric has very little to no sheen and a slightly rough, but not scratchy, texture. It has a slightly stiff drape.

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.
