This is a wonderful, full kimono bolt of Yuki Tsumugi Silk. Yuki Tsumugi is totally hand made so hand spun, dyed and hand woven on a loom back strap. It can take up to two years to weave enough fabric for an adult size kimono. The fabric comes from the area of Japan, Yuki City in Ibaraki Prefecture. It is a luxurious fabric made from silken threads but has a rough texture and comes into it's own through years of wear. In 1965 it was declared an Important Intangible Cultural Treasure of Japan and is also on the UNESCO list of intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity. This bolt has all labels of authenticity and has a Yukiwa, Snowflake, design. Wonderful collector's item !
