So my quest for silk worthy enough to use for shibori took me up into Michigan, into the Royal Oaks area. The quest was a long one that I won’t bore you with tons of details about so much as cut to the good stuff…the 2 bolts of kimono fabric I found in an upscale American fabric store. To find those 2 little bolts of fabric in such a huge fabric store really says something for my eye for kimono! The fabric ran $35 a yard, ouch – but man is it pretty.
*SNIFF* *SNIFF* I smell….kimono fabric? Can you spot the kimono bolts in this? I did!
BEHOLD! The two bolts, laid out side by side. What gems they are!

…and a close up of the other.
Shibori fun later, I got some great silk to work with.
