RaeStreetRetro is excited to be part of the upcoming Mackay Creatives Exhibition at Artspace, commencing 24 March 2015.
One of the items being exhibited is a Kinsha Silk table runner, “Wabi Summertime”. Kinsha Silk is a fine crepe silk produced in 1920’s and 1930’s. It is a top quality silk, hard to now find and is therefore very sought after. The threads were dyed 20-30 times to obtain the intensity of colours. Traditionally, Kinsha Silk was used for summer kimonos due to its very fine lightweight quality.
