Description

This kimono is a show-stopper! It's a bold color, mottled, between cherry pink and a deep rose. Part of the pattern is dyed a very pale yellow, while some has been left white. It has great attention to detail, with even the veins of the leaves. If you're a fan of shibori, there are at least two very different shibori techniques, one wrapped thread resist and one stitched, capped and gathered to form a resist (used for the pale yellow leaves). Very nice technique, as well as a gorgeous design! The fabric is a geometrically patterned with a woven, textured pattern and has very nice drape. It's in very good vintage condition, with no problems I've observed or that have been noted by my supplier.

It is about 47 inches at the waist and hips with some inches of overlap; it measures about 48.8 inches from sleeve to sleeve, and approximately 61.4 inches from shoulder to hem.

and Accessories https://www.etsy.com/shop/DianesGemsAndFibers?section_id=20646209 for various choices to secure this kimono.

If the thought of kimono sleeves dangling would keep you from wearing one, I now offer to alter them: https://www.etsy.com/listing/517438066/kimono-sleeve-reduction-alteration?ref=shop_home_active_17

Please check my shop for more lovely kimono, obi and haori fabrics, silk sari fabrics, and for more vintage haori and kimono.

I am no expert on kimono or fabrics, just a fiber artist with a deep love of beautiful textiles. But I have been collecting and working with kimono for a number of years, so feel free to ask any questions you might have and I will tell you what I can.

I have fibromyalgia, I don't have the energy to iron, and this is a vintage kimono jacket which has been stored for years. I have not noticed any stains or spots beyond those stated, but it may have age- or storage-related imperfections. When I find these, I state them. As is normal with vintage items, this item is sold as is.

Shipping is by Priority mail and is only minimally insured. Should you wish it more fully insured or sent by another option, convo me. If sent under-insured I can not be held responsible should something go wrong in the shipping. I try to refund overage on shipping charges. I don't accept returns unless the item has been grossly misrepresented, but please let me know if you are unhappy with it when you receive it. If there is a problem, please contact me before leaving negative feedback. I prefer to have happy, satisfied customers! Thanks.

Pet-friendly, smoke-free home.

Returns and exchange details
Cut fabrics are not returnable, unless an item is grossly misrepresented. Likewise, vintage items are sold "As is." But should you have a problem with an item, I would rather work with you to resolve it than to have you feel that negative feedback is your only recourse, so please contact me. I do want to make customers happy!

Shipping policies

My shipping rates are set high enough to cover any combination of items and make sure I'm not losing money on shipping (yes, this has happened), as my prices for kimono textiles are as reasonable as possible. Different fabrics, whether yardage or garments, weigh quite different amounts, hence the initially high shipping charge. That does temporarily mean that customers purchasing several items often overpay on shipping--but it's temporary as my policy is to refund overcharges on shipping, which I do when packing orders in order to have accurate weights when I purchase postage.

I use recycled--and recyclable--materials where possible, especially in shipping, and otherwise tend to use the best possible materials. I include a packing slip for extra assurance in the rare case a package is damaged in shipping. I generally pack an item or items in a plastic bag which, unfortunately, my suppliers do use. These are plastic bags which have contained textile items, not bags from other sources, so you need not fear that other substances will stain your items.

Similarly I nearly always use manila envelopes or Priority envelopes/boxes, both of which can be recycled. If you prefer that I package your items in plastic, please let me know and I will do my best to accommodate your preferences.

In general, I ship by the least expensive option although I ship Priority once a domestic order reaches approximately $7.00 in shipping charges, so that your order is covered by insurance. Because each of my items weighs a different amount, I have not priced the various shipping alternatives. If you prefer a faster method, or want to add insurance, convo me and I will work out a price quote for you.
