Silk Furisode kimono fabric panel - pine green to pink-orange with embroidered plum blossoms

Sorry, this item has sold.

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 does have some tiny pinholes, creases and notation marks along the selvage.

**Please note that this panel has some flaws. This panel is being offered at a discounted price due to these flaws. Please read the description carefully to learn more**

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

The entire panel is about 142 inches ( 360.7 cm) long x 14.75 inches (37.4 cm) wide. This panel has no cuts in it (as many panels from finished kimono often do). This panel is from the body of the kimono.

This panel is primarily a pine-green color. The green color changes to a pink orange color at each end of the panel. One end of the panel has two embroidered plum blossoms (ume) and one embroidered, green colored, circular shape. The larger plum blossom (photo 5) is a pale pink color with metallic gold colored stamens. The second plum blossom is a pink-orange color with a metallic gold colored stem.

This is a chirimen style silk that has a subtle sheen and a wonderful, orange peel texture. This silk is of medium weight and has a slightly fluid drape.

The pink-orange colored part of the panel that has the embroidered ume is about 5 inches long (12.7 cm). There is then about 131 inches (332.7 cm) of the pine green colored area and then about 7 inches (17.8 cm) of pink orange color. The entire panel is about 142 inches ( 360.7 cm) long x 14.75 inches (37.4 cm) wide.

Please refer to the last two photos to see the color of the silk. Crayola brand crayons are shown for color reference. The colors are very dynamic and change depending on the light reflecting off the silk.

**This panel has some sun fading. The sun fading is about 71 inches (180 cm) from the embroidered end of the panel. There is a larger spot of fading and then a line that extends horizontally across the fabric. I attempted to show this area in the two right-most photos in the 7th picture. There is also a crease that runs the length of the panel that is slightly faded at the crease line. This crease is about 2 inches (5cm) from the right selvage. I attempted to capture this crease line and the fading in the left most picture of photo 7. The fading is difficult to see in these photographs because it is lighter and the sheen of the fabric prevents it from being photographed well.

There is also a large spot near the smaller, embroidered, ume blossom. Photos of this spot can be seen in the 8th picture. Please note that the spot is on the reverse side of the fabric (backside) and it is very difficult to see on the front-side of the fabric. **

*Shipping cost overages greater than $1.00 will be refunded*

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 in addition to those described. This fabric has not been laundered so it could have a slight storage smell, although I do not note any.
