Silk swatches from vintage Japanese kimono are pieced together to create this elegant one-of-a-kind piece of cultural history. Each swatch carries with it the story of its former lifeperhaps as a furisode that was worn to a wedding, or the shorter haori worn over a kimono. Harmonious patterns in shades of red are pieced together and trimmed with black silk. As these are made from vintage kimono, colors and patterns will vary. Most include shades of red, cranberry, and maroon; a few range to orange and apricot. Please see alternate product images for examples. Reverses to solid black silk.
Imported. 100% silk. Approximately 58"L x 10"W.
