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

The fabric features a densely designed pattern of cranes in flight, dyed in soft pastel blues and pinks.  Note the batik-like crackle in each of the cranes - likely done with a rice paste as part of the stencil process, but it also gives additional depth and design to the cranes.

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.
