This listing is for one yard of vintage Japanese kimono fabric.

We love the abstract elements in this design, as much as the bold colors and the slight imperfections.  The chunky geomentric shapes are just fun, and perhaps the dye work bleeding ever-so-slightly into the border can be overlooked.

Although we can see the repeated pattern, we suspect that each element was drawn by hand, since no two elements are exactly the same.  That makes this design even more special.

Nice drape to the silk.

The standard width of all kimono fabric is between 13" and 14" and each length offered here is at least 36" - some are more generous cuts. Multiple pieces may be available.

When we find vintage (circa 1950s but could be older or newer by two decades) Japanese kimono or haori in less-than-sellable condition, we salvage what we can and offer it to artisans, quilters, crafters, and designers for project work. So the fabric has been previously sewn and though we carefully deconstruct the kimono, previous seam lines, as well as minor blemishes, may need to be worked around or trimmed away. The inspiring designs, hand work, and the ageless beauty of vintage Japanese textiles make all the extra work so worthwhile.
