This piece of fabric depicts unique military Pacific War-WWII scenery. The Tachikawa Ki-70 "Clara" was a high speed photo reconnaissance aircraft that was tested for the Japanese Air Force in prototype form, but never entered production (very rarely to be depicted on fabrics). The Ki-70 was first flown in 1943 but was found unfavorable and the program was terminated. Three were built. In later years the Ki-70 was used to disprove supposed photographic evidence concerning Amelia Earhart's supposed capture by the Japanese before World War II. Other explicit military designs, images of many Rising Sun Battle Flags or other symbols of modern times, such as Raising Sun Battle flags, battleships and soldiers.
This kind of fabric was typically used for boys' school uniforms or men's undergarments. This is a truly, unique collectors' item.
