Item details

This is a lovely, heavy silk fabric, designed to be made into an obi but never completed, so I'm selling the fabric by the repeat. There are seven 11+ inch repeats available at the time of this listing and five of the solid-color, brick patterned background fabric; check the drop-down menu to see how much of each remains. This is 13 inches wide and is sold by the repeat. I have not observed discoloration, spots or damage.

Please, a minimum order of $8.

10% REFUND when you pay with PayPal, plus I am able to refund excess shipping—but only when you pay with PayPal. This will be calculated and refunded when I pack your order for shipping. Thank you for understanding! Thank you.

INTERNATIONAL CUSTOMERS: I seem to be finding that Etsy shipping is more expensive than shipping through PayPal. I strongly suggest that you pay for your purchases from my shop with PayPal. Even if you don't have a PayPal account they offer you the option of using a credit card without opening an account, and it makes it MUCH easier for me to refund any excess shipping charge.

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.

Shipping is by first class mail and is uninsured although due to the nature of this fabric it may be shipped in a box, to prevent damage. Should you wish it insured or sent by Priority, convo me. If sent uninsured I can not be held responsible should something go wrong in the shipping. I don't accept returns unless the item has been grossly misrepresented, but please let me know if you are unhappy with it when you receive it. If there is a problem, please contact me before leaving negative feedback. I prefer to have happy, satisfied customers! Thanks.

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.

Additional return information
Cut fabrics are not returnable, unless an item is grossly misrepresented. Likewise, vintage items are sold "As is." But should you have a problem with an item, I would rather work with you to resolve it than to have you feel that negative feedback is your only recourse, so please contact me. I do want to make customers happy!
