&This piece of fabric is from an unused bolt of japanese silk and wool blend that was designed for a kimono maybe during the late Showa era( 1947 - 1989 ) or in the 1990s.

A pretty sarasa style print in darkened red, dark forest green and lighter olive green, dark blue and mid brown on tsumugi woven background woven from lilac silk and black wool thread.

It drapes like a super fine silk taffeta though slightly floppier with the soft wool content.

FLAW: there is a weaving flaw - every 20 or 30cm some of the black thread did not get woven into the lilac - which produces a thin horizontal crevice of brighter colour where the print has gone onto only lilac silk so it is brighter. The fifth photo describes this the best showing what this looks like on the reverse side of the fabric.

It is a natural fabric blend of silk and wool only.

Condition: Vintage, never used, still in brand new condition, well-kept for decades.

Length: 1m or 39.4 inches.
Width: 36.5cm or 14 1/4 inches

You can save 5% by paying in AUD by bank deposit. If you wish to receive this discount, please choose the Other payment option instead of paypal then wait for my message with payment details.

Postage Guide:
You will be refunded for any postage packaging overcharged. The etsy-calculated rate is sometimes higher than the actual (never lower).

As a guide, 3 metres of japanese kimono silk to USA is $8.35 postage & packaging.

I combine postage whenever possible and charge postage plus packaging at cost. Please ask for combined total before buying if you are unsure.

*USA customers: Sadly there is now an AUD$9 surcharge imposed by the postal service for parcels over 500g entering the USA - to cover increased security checking costs.
The etsy rates are set to account for that charge after a certain number of fabric pieces or meterage is reached.
This means that postage cost for several silk panels or metres can look very high from the etsy quote - but if the parcel weighs less than 500g in total, it is likely the post will be lower than etsy shows. Please ask for a quote or custom listing if this seems too unsure for you.
