Really thrilled with how these one-off Black Koi's turned out. This silk is very difficult to work with, and its rare that I get them to be absolutely perfect in every way, but these are honestly flawless. Guess I am getting better at taking my time. My all time favorite Japanese dobby cotton on the front with a very nice alternating blue and white decorative stitch to match the silk backing. On the back is a gorgeous embroidered blue and white dragon silk. Only one of these beauties available. Came very close to keeping this one for myself!
