Beautiful vintage komon silk from an unused kimono bolt sold by the yard. Winter tree blossom painted komon in gray, blue and cream with yellow. Has a brush painting similar to sumie that is stencil dyed . This fabric has a wonderful drape to it and is very soft. It is in very good vintage condition (may have tiny flaws due to age but overall excellent condition) . The fabric and the print has a gorgeous flow to it and will turn any project into a work of art.
Katazome or stencil dyeing is a dyeing method that uses a stencil to create repeated patterns, either using dye paste or a resist paste. The stencil is usually made of a stiff type of paper infused with persimmon juice, and is washed and reused until it falls apart. Edo Komon and Kata Yuzen are types of Katazome stencil dyeing methods. With combinations of stencil, brush and resist techniques, the dye craftsmen created fabric that is its own art form.
Size 1 yard (36 inches) x 37cm (14.5 inches) If you order more than 1 yard it will be cut in one contiguous piece.
Colors may vary slightly depending on the monitor.
Please note - vintage fabrics may have minor imperfections due to age. Kimono silk should be gently hand washed or dry cleaned. Please ask if you are not sure.
Really beautiful and just as described. Got here quickly. Thank you.
