A one of a kind, vintage Japanese kimono silk cape. The fabric has been pieced, the geometric shapes emphasized by the fabric's painted design. Small squares have been hand appliquéd to add points of interest.
A one size fits most, the cape measures 50 inches wide and 36 inches long.
All pieces are hand made one at a time in my Portland, Oregon studio. 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.
