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

The colors are soothing, the design sublime. Soft pastel shades of pink and purple alternate in a diamond grid where each shape is filled with a stylized pine bough. 

While the white grid was likely done with a stencil, the thin white lines of the pine needles inside each diamond were hand-done with a thin brush. Look closely to see just a touch of difference between the lines, which suggest they were not applied with a stencil, but by hand. 

Soft, creamy silk with a smooth drapey quality.

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.
