Japanese bamboo

A delicate bamboo print in red and blue with gold highlights drifts across fine cream colored silk on this vintage fabric that is probably Japanese. I backed it with lightweight blue wool. I think the wool is what is called challis: it's not scratchy at all. This scarf is reminiscent of an obi but is soft and pliable, unlike obis which are very stiff and can't be worn as scarves. The photo features our new model named Crystal.
