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

A printed design of petals and leaves outlined in a row of faux shibori kaneko dots in a rolling palette of autumn colors. Each leaf and petal is filled with thin gray lines - it reminds us of a zentangle design. The background silk has a slightly rustic look and feel, where the weft is thicker than the warp, so the horizontal bands are more evident.

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 and, if you're ordering two yards, continuous yardage will be sent IF it is 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.
