Leopard Skin Design Meisen Silk

Regular price $97.00 $0.00 Unit price per
Tax included.

Leopard skin design  meisen  silk that dates from mid 20th century.    Meisen is nearly always older than it looks! 36cm x 6.5 m.  It  is a machine woven ikat that was developed in the late 19th century.  It's very much associated with fashionable young women of the 1920's and 30's  and was the most common non-formal kimono fabric of the period.  It had a  brief revival after the war but because it wasn't suitable for formal wear it declined in popularity as kimonos came to be worn primarily for ceremonial occasions. It is  quite a stiff silk with a crisp feel.  

Price includes GST and regular postage within Australia
