Beautiful piece of embroidered silk from a vintage 1950 / 1960s Japanese Furisode (swinging sleeves) Kimono.


This fantastic piece comes from the front of a 1950s /1960s Japanese Furisode Kimono and consists of two pieces of fabric which have been left sewn together, as they were when part of the Kimono. The panel has most of a beautiful embroidered metallic silver and gold Peacock or Phoenix Bird and Flower design on a shaded cream and purple base. The background silk also has a "water ripple" fine weave which catches the light as the silk moves. The embroidery on the Bird and Flowers is really heavy and rich, and some of the Flowers are embroidered in couched metallic gold which adds to the richness and texture of the piece.

The piece is of medium weight, soft and flowing and in great vintage condition, with a few creases from storage, some small marks and stains in places (see detail photos) and along the seams from when part of a Kimono. It is perfect for craft or quilting projects.

I have not ironed this fabric.

Measurement: approx 46cm wide by 96cm long (18ins by 38ins)

If you want to see more photos then please contact me and I will send you a link to a Picasa Album

You could use the pieces to make a table-runner, wall-hanging, patchwork, cushions or any other craft or quilting project.
