It's not an antique but still fell in love with when I saw it in a Japanese shop on display. It was marked as not for sale but I managed to reach a deal. I believe this is made from natural silk but not sure. Anyone know please comment, guess welcome as well.

    Have not seen one of these for some time. Very beautiful.

    Beautiful! Seems to be a thick "crèpe de soie" with a kind of texture.
    Silk is very insulating, if you wrap it on your hand, you will feel warmth.
    If you can get a thread from a hidden part and approach a flame it will burn with a smoke smelling hair burnt. If not natural silk the thread will melt and smell chemical!

    It smells like overcook rice when burnt, that's the best description I could make. It's not single layer and has silk lining as well. Hence hard to tell which one kept the warmth.
