Saturday craft show reminder and MORE KIMONO!
With perfect timing, a box full of kimono and haori arrived this morning. These are all quite vintage (1950s and 70s) but lovely fabrics, good colours (better than I expected) and very wearable patterns. There are some lovely purple kimono and haori, an excellent 1950s meisen kimono with a bold pattern and some beautiful michiyuki (kimono coats). I've had a quick look through and the condition is very good, with few marks for their age. Ideal for wearing casually or for "kimono reform" - using the beautiful fabrics for remaking into one-of-a-kind clothing.
I'll have the pick of these on sale on Saturday, at "The Big One" craft fair in Wrexham - check my diary blog for all the info.
