Tsumugi kimono silk fabric by the yard, geometric ikat

$14.40 $16.00

Shipping to United States: $4.00

Beautiful vintage Japanese hand loomed woven silk . Offered by the yard x 14” wide. 1 yard = 36" inches. Tiny geometric design is laboriously created with a tied off ikat technique using natural dies of black and light blue silk. The resulting overall hue is somewhat teal and the surface has a somewhat satin smooth hand. This silk has a bit of a structure from the weft weave - very tightly woven - possibly a dupioni weave with no slubbing. This is a Tsumugi kimono silk meaning the pattern is created from weaving Not dying. It is used for the Tsumugi kimono or Obi belts -- also could be used for making hair bows or bow ties as well as patchwork silk garments.

Zoom in to see the design. FREESWATCH to see at home. This is a dark colorway so it is difficult to capture the subtle blue design against the black. The photo with the Japanese writing 100% silk - hand loomed in Japan. The Japanese calligraphy photo is for informational purposes only -- it identifies the region in which this was woven - you will not receive this in your cut.
