Item details

This beautiful silk fabric was part of an unfinished furisode kimono. The furisode kimono is traditionally worn by young, unmarried women and is one of the most beautiful and decorated kimono. This silk was basted together into the kimono form but was not finished. Because of this the fabric is in excellent condition EXCEPT for tiny pinholes, creases and small notation marks along the selvage. These marks were made by the seamstress and are only on the selvage and should not affect how the silk can be used. These marks do not extend more than .5 inches (1.3cm) from the selvage.


These silk panels are perfect for creating home accessories, formal wraps or even quilts.

The entire panel is about 100 inches ( 254 cm) long x 15.25 inches ( 38.7 cm) wide. This panel has no cuts in it (as many panels from finished kimono often do). This panel was the sleeve of the kimono.

The panel is a deep indigo color. This indigo blue color has deep violet undertones that are more or less noticeable depending on the light. One end of the panel has a printed pattern of yellow, sky blue, pink and lght green sakura (cherry blossoms) blossoms and petals. The entire printed portion of the panel is seen in the 3rd photo. The printed portion of the panel is about 24 inches long (61 cm). The remainder of the panel is the solid blue indigo color.

Please note that the printed area is not located in the center of the panel. It starts about 11 inches (28cm) from one end of the panel. After the printed portion area there is about 66 inches (168 cm) of solid indigo blue color.

This is a rinzu (damask) chirimen style silk that has a subtle sheen and a wonderful texture. When the light reflects off the silk a woven pattern of sakura blossoms and petals can be seen. This silk is of medium weight and has a slightly fluid drape. The printed portion of the panel has a slightly stiffer drape.

The last three photos show the color of the silk most accurately. Crayola brand crayons were placed in the photos for color comparison.

I also have a matching body panel available for purchase here:

I believe that the pictures show a good representation of the fabric colors however, please remember that colors may look different on your monitor. This is a vintage fabric so there may be small blemishes or marks although I did not see any. This fabric has not been laundered so it could have a slight storage smell, although I do not note any.
