This silk textile is truly exceptional, showcasing a vibrant, beautiful shade of blue. Jigine, a distinctive silk crafted in a specific rural area of Japan, possesses qualities akin to tsumugi silk but with a notably softer texture. Its billowy nature and natural slubs, attributed to the use of tussah silk in the weaving process, add unique character. The fabric features an exquisite undulating wave motif called tatewaku against a backdrop adorned with stunning jewel-toned clams. It's important to note that the dots, known as kanoko, emulate the appearance of shibori through a screening process. The piece is in excellent condition, measuring 14.5 inches x 50 inches (37 cm x 127 cm).
