Kimono
Silk crepe (chijimi)
Stenciled

This fairly contemporary kimono appears to have been hand dyed.

The repeat is approximately 31″ long. The three photos below are three different versions of the same repeat. Note the varying strengths of the dye from one version to another.

The photo below shows the face of the material on the left and the reverse on the right.

The waves in the material are the result of the highly twisted yarns.
