- As vintage fabric has had a previous life and story, some may show slight signs of small flaws and/or damage. We do our best to source fabric that is in great condition. However, please be aware that sometimes you may see these small remnants of your item's previous life.
- Most of the garments we offer here are one-of-a-kind sourced from Kyoto, Osaka, Nara, and Kobe. Most kimono and obi have been kept carefully in individual family storage chests for some time so there may be a lingering storage scent. If there should be, please air the garment out in a well-ventilated room or outside with nondirect sunlight.
The Kimono (着物, きもの)was the form of dress worn in Japan until the mid19th century. Kimono have a T-shaped,straight-line fit. Kimono are wrapped around the body, always with the left side over the right and are secured by a sash called an obi, which is tied at the back, A woman's kimono is traditionally very long as the additional length allows for the tuck that can be seen under the obi or obijime(sash), which is used to adjust the kimono to the wearer.
