Fave fabric Friday

This Friday's fabric is a stunning orange and cream Japanese kimono fabric that I bought in Tokyo. 

I love the simple blossom and chrysanthemum motifs, so characteristic of Japanese design, but although it's an antique, it's very modern-looking. It has definitely been well-loved and worn, and probably has a few stories to tell! The silk is beautifully soft and fine and I can imagine how lovely it would feel to wear.

I only have a small piece of this and am looking forward to making some coin purses out of it.
