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

This patern is simple but somehow comforting - maybe because it reminds us of a quilted comforter!  Dark purple lines curve and create an almost 3D effect of seamlines holding puffed batting in place.

The lines might well have been drawn by hand rather than stenciled or printed. Try to find a true repeated section!

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.
