Vintage kimono bolt fabric. 100% silk.
The pattern is cut from an 'Iromuji' 色無地, vintage kimono bolt. This type of textile can be worn for both casual to formal occasions including tea ceremonies. This textile features a hexagonal 'Kikkou', 亀甲, a tortoiseshell woven pattern that signifies longevity and good fortune. A traditional inspiration for Samurai armor designs.
Traditionally, a kimono is constructed from bolts of silk measuring 14" / 35-37cm wide and the pattern is developed and carefully laid out to maintain the narrow width. Detailed with a center front placket with shell buttons, back yoke, side paneling, and single-button cuffs.
Every piece is one of a kind and hand-numbered. All wear and idiosyncrasies are unique to the textile. Handcrafted by artisans in New York City.
