Vintage Kimono Silk Sample Bolt
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.
