Fave fabric Friday (except it's Saturday!)

I'm afraid I'm a day late with fave fabric Friday!

This week I wanted to talk about some of the Japanese kasuri fabrics I have. This is the Japanese word used for ikat-style fabrics where the design of the fabric has been dyed onto the fibres before the fabric has been woven. This creates a blurred effect when made up. I find it amazing that the pattern can come anywhere close to looking like a proper pattern and love the finished effect.

I chose a selection of some of my antique kimonos and decided to link them together in colour feel. I love the bottom chrysanthemum design which will be made up into a clutch soon!
