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 numbered.  All wear and idiosyncrasies are unique to the textile.  Handcrafted by artisans in New York City.
