This enchanting Oshima Tsumugi
Silk Bolt is for kimono.
Textile is silk, and it has soft and crisp touch.
Its fine pattern is woven with double ikat technique.
It comes with a certificate of Kagoshima product. (Somehow its certificate shows it is machine sewn silk. )
It mas slight musty smell, but it does not have prominent flaws.
It must be an amazing handicraft material!
*Since many of our bolts and fabrics have been stored for long time, minor flaws such as slight discolorations can be detected when it is tailored, although it seems to be in excellent condition as the state of a bolt or a fabric.
Unfortunately some of our bolts and fabrics may not be suitable for tailoring.
Thank you very much for your understanding in advance.
