Vintage Kimono Silk Sample Bolt

Regular price $120.00 $0.00 Unit price per
Tax included.

There are 16  individual designs  each 70cm long on this  sample bolt of kimono silk. The total length  is approx 11.5 metres x 34.5cm.  I'm not sure if these sample bolts were used for wholesale or retail businesses or both.  Because they usually come in  the length of a regular kimono bolt they were often re-used to make juban  under-kimonos.  I always think they would make lovely, simple quilts  because they already come in complementary  colours and designs. . The condition is excellent but there may be a few minor imperfections in the dyeing.  The end label reads 'Hongou' (Hometown) and the  small logo  says ' Made to order yuzen - Kyoto" . I think this is circa 1950's or 60s.

Price includes GST and regular postage within Australia.
