This listing is for one yard of reclaimed vintage Japanese fabric salvaged from a kimono or haori.

This kimono fabric comes from a michiyuki kimono jacket. The satiny silk is smooth and shiny in a double-weave pattern. That is, the tiny checked pattern that is the backgound on the front can be seen inside the little narrow swirls on the backside. And the softly shaded background from the back side fills the swirling arc on the front side.

Grays and blues with black and white.

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.
