Textured silk Kimono fabric - pale silver floral arabesque- by the yard


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 silk has some flaws. Please read the description carefully to learn about these flaws. The silk is being offered at a discounted price due to these issues**

This beautiful silk fabric is unused, old stock and would be perfect for smaller projects, such as doll clothing, piecework, fiber art or hair accessories.

This kimono fabric has a printed, black colored, floral arabesque design over a silver-gray background. Some of the flowers are dyed a coral pink and white color.

The silk has a wonderful and unique, woven texture. The texture reminds me of paper, crepe party streamers. Due to the weaving and the reflection of the light, the silk can appear more of a gray with blue undertones or a gray with beige undertones. It has a nice drape.

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.

*** The selvage ends of this bolt of silk have faded over time. They appear more of a beige color than silver. This affects the entire length of the silk. The 7th photo shows the color difference between the center and selvage edge of the fabric. This is also shown in the 8th photo. There are also a few age spots on the selvage of the fabric (photo 9) however these spots are on the selvage line and should not affect how you can use the fabric. The silk is still strong and the fading should not affect how the fabric can be used.***

Fabric specifics:

-Fabric is 14.5 inches (36.8 cm) wide.

-light to medium weight with nice drape

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 in addition to those noted in the description. This item has been stored for many years so there may be a slight storage smell although I do not notice any.
