Tsumugi pongee Silk Kimono Fabric with golden bamboo design - by the yard

$10.50


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.

This beautiful tsumugi pongee fabric is unused, old stock and is in excellent condition. It would make an amazing scarf, wrap, quilt, pillow case or skirt. It can be used for apparel but please remember that kimono fabric is not as wide as other fabrics.

This gorgeous silk, kimono fabric features a printed design of bamboo leaves in muted green and golden-yellow hues over a red background. The background color is mottled and changes from a red to a deeper brick red hue. The background also has a sa-me shark skin design created with small dots (edo komon). The design is printed (NOT woven) to imitate the pattern seen in Oshima tsumugi silk.

This silk is a bit different than other tsumugi silks, which have noticeable slubbing, and is very similar to the texture and weight of Oshima tsumugi. I suspect that this silk was created to provide an illusion of Oshima tsumugi, without the high cost.

As with Oshima silks, this silk is a light to medium weight with a smooth texture and cotton-like hand. The fabric has a slightly crisp drape, resistance to wrinkles and subtle sheen.

The last photo shows the colors most accurately. Crayola brand crayons were placed in the photo for a color comparison.
