Large Book or Bible Cover, Vintage Kimono Silk Fabulous Flying Phoenix Turquoise
£21.00 1 Available
Love this


This lovely silk fabric features a fabulous flying phoenix in turquoise, red, purple and white.
SIZE: Suitable for a medium to large hardback or paperback books measuring (when closed) approximately:
Up to 6.5 inch wide (16.5 cm) wide
Up to 9.75 inch high (25 cm) high
Up to 2 inch thick (5 cm) thick
Unfortunately this particular bolt of vintage kimono silk has not stood the test of time as well as some of my other silks. There are a few age spots in one or two places and some small dots of overspill from the gold and silver metallic paints.
However because this pattern is so wonderful I do not feel that they detract from the finished product. In view of these slight imperfections I am selling book covers made from this fabric at a lower price than normal.

Spot clean only.
Lay flat to dry away from direct heat.
Light press with warm iron if necessary, but use a pressing cloth.
Do NOT allow the iron to come into contact with the metallic highlights.
Please do NOT machine wash or machine dry.

The books and files in the pictures are for demonstration purposes only.
You are only buying a Book Cover.


The Kimono silk fabric is wonderfully soft but quite strong. It is cut from a vintage bolt of Kimono silk which was never used. The silk fabric was originally meant for a Furisode Kimono, which is a very formal garment for unmarried girls and has very long flowing sleeves.
The phoenix is flying over a pink and cream fantasy landscape of bright bold flowers and swirling waters. All outlined in the gold and silver metallic paint.
