Wings and Grass
Pieced, vintage, Japanese kimono silk scarf.
One of a kind.
Approximately 7 x 72 inches.
All silks are vintage. They were originally painted, stenciled, woven or dyed to be used for kimonos. Some were never used and have been in storage, others are from old kimonos.
The pictures show the scarf's two sides and a detail.
Each scarf is individually sewn in Portland, Oregon.
All pieces are hand made one at a time in my Portland, Oregon studio. Most fabrics are vintage Japanese silks. These very special fabrics were woven, stenciled, tie-dyed and painted by Japanese artisans. Many were still in the bolt on their way to become kimonos. Others had been sewn into kimonos but were no longer wearable. I remove the hand stitching, wash and prepare the fabrics for their new life. Each piece I make is unique, most are one of a kind. I ship USPS priority at the beginning of the week. Please let me know if you need it sooner. Returns are accepted for store credit if returned within two weeks of delivery.
