Item details

This listing is for one yard (36 inches or 91.33cm) of fabric. There are multiple yards available. If more than one yard is purchased then you will receive the entire yardage as one complete length. Please note that if you order a large number of yards the shipping cost may be overestimated. I always refund shipping overages of $1.00 or more.

This beautiful silk fabric is unused, old stock and would make an amazing scarf, wrap, hair accessory, pillow case or skirt. It is in perfect shape. It can be used for apparel but please remember that kimono fabric is not as wide as other fabrics.

This silk has a dyed floral design featuring chrysanthemum, foliage and arabesque over an beige colored background. The chrysanthemums (kiku) are in muted purple-brown, red-brown and brown tones. Blue and green leaves peak out from behind the flowers while blue arabesque scrolls cover the background.

The silk is a crepe silk and has a wonderful "bumpy" texture and a fluid drape that has body. This chirimen has a slight sheen. Crayola brand crayons were placed in the last photo for color comparison. Please enlarge the photos to see the wonderful texture and color of the silk.

Fabric specifics:

-Fabric is 13 5/8 inches (34.6 cm) wide.

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 item so there may be small blemishes or marks although, I do not see any. This item has been stored for many years so there may be a slight storage smell although I do not notice any.

*I am always willing to provide more information or pictures regarding my fabrics or using/sewing these fabrics. Please do not hesitate to send me a contact me if you have any questions.*
