Soft, Subdued Pastel Orange Silk Kimono Fabric with Tiny Pastel Flowers and Leaves BTY or
This is a very pretty fabric with lovely drape. The pattern is an all-over one of rosy pink and soft blue flowers, with leaves of the same colors, plus tan. The fabric has a very nice hand: it has body without a lot of weight, so it drapes beautifully yet is not at all limp, nor is it heavy. I'd describe its weight as a light mid-weight silk. It's not a shiny silk but texturally is simply matte, as it appears in the photo. Please note that the photo shows the fabric in detail, and the flowers and leaves are in actuality each about half an inch in size.
This listing is for a piece just over 14 inches wide by one yard. This is from new old stock, never made up into a kimono, so there are no fold marks nor is it yet cut into lengths. Should you want more than one yard, I will gladly cut you a continuous length.
Please check my shop for more lovely kimono, obi and haori fabrics, and for vintage haori.
I am no expert on kimono or fabrics, just a collector and fiber artist with a deep love of beautiful textiles. But I have been collecting and working with kimono for a number of years, so feel free to ask any questions you might have and I will tell you what I can.
I have fibromyalgia, I don't have the energy to iron, this is vintage obi fabric and so has been both worn, and stored for years. I have not noticed any stains or spots, but it may have age- or storage-related imperfections. When I find these, I state them. As usual for used, vintage items, this is sold "as is."

Shipping & policies
I use recycled--and recyclable--materials where possible, especially in shipping, and otherwise tend to use the best possible materials. I include a packing slip, for the extra assurance in the rare case a package is damaged in shipping. I generally pack an item or items in a plastic bag which, unfortunately, my suppliers do use. These are only plastic bags which have contained textile items, not bags from other sources.
Similarly I nearly always use manila envelopes or Priority envelopes/boxes, both of which can be recycled. I do have poly envelopes, but I rarely use them. If you prefer that I package your items in plastic, please let me know and I will do my best to accommodate your preferences.
In general, I ship by the least expensive option although I ship Priority once a domestic order reaches approximately $6.00 in shipping charges, so that your order is covered by insurance. Because each of my items weighs a different amount, I have not priced the various shipping alternatives. If you prefer a faster method, or want to add insurance, convo me and I will work out a price quote for you.
