Ohhh if these pieces could talk! I am sure they would have quite the story to tell!
My niece brought me a box full of excitement over Easter weekend that her mother-in-law gave her from the attic of her house. I know to some these would be just old pieces full of holes but to me they are truly awesome.
The red piece is an antique Japanese Kimono from the 1800's...picutures do not do it justice...the colors are still vibrant after a century of being stored in the attic.The sheer weight of this is amazing...I'm still trying to figure out how such small people could even carry such a garment!
The other two pieces are like a wrap skirt made from Japanese silk...Erin said they believe these are from the 1920's....these are in pretty good shape and I will be able to create some wonderful purses and wristlets. The detail is stunning and very well crafted...I just can not wait to start creating some wonderful one of a kind creations from these beautiful pieces.
