STUNNING PLUM BLOSSOMS LIGHT CORAL CHIRIMEN JAPANESE KIMONO SILK FABRIC #A28.The silk is a light weight, luscious chirimen. The base color is a most beautiful light coral (slightly lighter) at http://www.w3schools.com/HTML/html_colornames.asp. The design is dyed in and screened with gold and yellow accents. The silk is vintage but in really good condition (for vintage silk)...I see some tiny, light spots but that is about it! You are bidding on 14"x60". (Feb 18, 2013 18:52:34 PST)
