Inspiration

The pattern is of pretty coloured butterflies with bright flowers, and highlighted with gold-tone metallic paint.

The silk kimono fabric used for this book cover is wonderfully soft, glossy and smooth but quite strong. It was originally meant for a furisode kimono with long sleeves. The most formal kimono worn by young unmarried women in Japan.

Fastens with a vintage glass French button and an elastic loop and is lined with a shaded purple cotton. There is a beaded ribbon bookmark.
