Silk-screened synthetic fabric
57” long x 39” wide (no finished selvedges, but appears to be the full width)
Very good unused condition (needs ironing)
Less expensive than woven silk ikat, faux-ikat fabric like this was popular for everyday girl’s and women’s dresses.
The young women in this photograph from an Uzbek fashion magazine (1975) are wearing printed-ikat dresses in the latest styles.
This cloth was most likely printed in one of the Soviet-built textile combines in either Uzbekistan or Tajikistan.
