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

This is a cotton dyed with indigo blue (we can't say if it was natural or chemical indigo) using a katagami stencil. The background pattern creates an optical illusion of movement as diamond shapes move in and out of focus. The original garment was a yukata - an unlined summer version of the kimono.

The background is interrupted byt the blue logo and simple lettering of the name of the hotel (we think it was a hotel) that originally owned this yukata.

The tandard 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 (kimono jackets) in less-than-sellable condition due to fading, blemishes, or holes, 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.
