Royal Blues was inspired by the embellished garb worn by different sects of
royalty throughout time. With the vintage 24k gold embroidery woven through it, it tells the story of when Japan thread embroidery began for use on royal Kimonos. Gold and silver yarns were made by pounding gold and silver stock into extremely thin leaf, which was sliced into very narrow strips and then rolled around a core and twisted into yarn. With time, the gold yarn was modified to a gilt yarn, which was silver with a gold overlay.
This piece is made with vintage 24K gold thread, part of a vintage supply
from the 1930’s, on a limited edition Saori silk warp. Fine jewelry for your
Silk, vintage 24K gold thread, wool, cotton, leather. Lucite dowel.
Handmade in San Francisco.
