My second auction to raise fund for the Japan Relief. A bundle of vintage kimono fabrics from my collection.
There is a mix of fabrics, though mostly silk. All together there is over 7 metres in there, most fabrics at the standard kimono panel width of 30 - 35cm, a couple are a bit narrower.
This big bold origami crane pattern comes from a woman's haori coat.
I love the Samurai helmet on this boy's fabric.
And look at these cranes, one a yummy crepe and the other a fabulously cute origami crane print.
The nitty-gritty of the auction...
