This is lovely fabric, a chirimen crepe silk in a great faux patchwork design. The chrysanthemums are lushly petalled and colorful, yet in a palette that is wonderfully complementary. "Patches" of these are interspersed with ones of plum blossoms in the base color, a slightly steely, very slightly greenish blue, along with "patches" of foliage The photos are pretty accurate as to color on my monitor. This fabric is in very good vintage condition, with no observed problems.
The fabric is from an uncut vintage bolt, 14.7 inches wide, and this listing is for one yard. It has not yet been cut so multiple yard orders will be cut in a continuous piece. Please note: the hand-woven pattern areas are scattered across the length of the fabric: I can't guarantee which will be in any given length.
PLEASE NOTE: for bookkeeping reasons, I prefer Paypal although Etsy now requires that I accept other forms of payment through their system. If you pay with Paypal, I will REFUND 10% of your entire purchase price, plus any overage on your shipping charge. This will be calculated and refunded when I pack your order for shipping. Thank you for understanding!

I am no expert on kimono or fabrics, just 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, and this is vintage kimono fabric which has been stored for years. I have not noticed any stains or spots, but it may have other age- or storage-related imperfections. When I find these, I state them. As is normal with vintage items, this item 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.
