Vintage Japanese Kimono Gift Wrap Scarf Red Crepe Fabric


Brand Poppy's Vintage Clothing

This product is unavailable

This is a vintage Japanese scarf that would have been used for wrapping a gift.  Wrapping gifts in fabric scarves is a Japanese tradition, and a nice one - not only do you get a gift, but a lovely scarf that you can use.  This piece is printed in a deep red color with a white panel that has a graphic of Japanese implements, I think a purse and, perhaps, a sword.  The scarf measures 27 1/2” by 28 1/2” and is in excellent condition.  There is a label affixed to it that reads “Teijin” and in Japanese “Roselle Yarn”.  The opposite side reads, in Japanese, 55% Acetate, 35% Rayon and 10% silk.  The fabric has a crepe finish, like that seen on Japanese kimonos.    

This is a very pretty scarf - wonderful color and print.....
