Red Kimono Silk Bolt
Vibrant vermillion bolt of as-new kimono silk. Hand-dyed in Kyoto. All over chrysanthemum pattern in the weave. Beautiful soft drape. 36cm x 12m. Late 20th century.
(Back story : Many years ago my then husband/supplier organised to get a number of rolls of kimono silk hand dyed in Kyoto to match a deep rich red that some of my customers had been looking for. We were told they could match anything so I gave him an antique sample that I loved. Some months later they turned up - including this one. The colour is stunning - but nothing at all like the colour of the sample! I'm sure there are still more in a box somewhere...)
