Woven Textured Wavy Tsunami or Cloud Pattern, Black Silk Kimono Fabric BTY
This is an interesting fabric; it's very textured, and looks as though it would be heavy. In actuality it's more of a mid-weight silk. Like so many of the woven-figured kimono silks, the textures on reversed on the back, so that what's satin on the front is matte on the back. This was designed to become a haori, and it has two partial crest motifs which would have been combined at the center back seam. Please let me know when you order it whether you prefer these or the completely solid black, but note that I may not be able to cut multiple yard orders as a single continuous piece because of these. Because it was designed for a haori, I don't have as much of this as of kimono fabrics.
This listing is for one yard, and it's 13.9 inches wide.

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 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
My shipping rates are set high enough to cover any combination of items and make sure I'm not losing money on shipping (yes, this has happened), as my prices for kimono textiles are as reasonable as possible. Different fabrics, whether yardage or garments, weigh quite different amounts, hence the initially high shipping charge. That does temporarily mean that customers purchasing several items often overpay on shipping--but it's temporary as my policy is to refund overcharges on shipping, which I do when packing orders in order to have accurate weights when I purchase postage.
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 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 plastic bags which have contained textile items, not bags from other sources, so you need not fear that other substances will stain your items.
Similarly I nearly always use manila envelopes or Priority envelopes/boxes, both of which can be recycled. 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 $7.00 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.
