Original Vintage Japanese Silk Kimonos
Each and every one of the kimonos in this antique & vintage collection is a unique piece of craftmanship from a time back in history, when mastering a craft was not only a trade but also a way to be closer to god. Every stitch is made by hand. And the textiles are of such high quality, as their intricate patterns and textures are made on the basis of the abundant variations of Japanese craft techniques like, yuzen drawings, damask weaving, brocades, shibori tie dyes, and ikat weavings, among others.. The beauty of the kimono shows that specific sense of flair for the detail, as well as for colours, which through out time has made Japanese craftsmanship known for its exceptional high quality.
A kimono is surrounded by almost a fairy tale air and since there is, true to the tradition only one of each kimono - there only is one kind of each story.. maybe that is part of the secret to the fabled kimono and its daydream-inducing beauty.
Please notice that
due to the long history of some of the textiles, time has inevitably
become an inherent part of the fabric’s characteristics, in form of marks and other imperfections.
