The fabric has such a lovely bright colour. The stylised red daisies really stand out against the bright sky blue. This gorgeous piece of kimono fabric has been carefully unpicked from a vintage woman's kimono.
The fabric is a synthetic rinzu.
Width - 34 cm (13 inches*) Length - 120 cm (47 inches*) Fabric - Synthetic rinzu (with a pattern woven in) Fabric Weight - Light Condition - A little aged, with some yellowing in areas.
All my kimono fabrics are handpicked by myself at Japanese antique markets. I choose kimonos that due to some imperfection of age can no longer be worn and is now ready to be lovingly remade and given a second life. As the fabric has come from an old kimono there will be small pinholes near the edges and small marks from wear. I try to detail any flaws on the fabric as much as I can above.
This fabric would be great in any textile art or craft including patchwork, quilting, bag or doll making. Be inspired by this gorgeous, authentic Japanese fabric.
