Description

This is for choice of obijime, from about 57-63 inches long, and a bit less than half an inch wide. They are, from left to right in the first photo:
1. Poppy red with pale gray and a touch of gold
2. Blue and silver
3. Pale blue-green, with a lovely section of variegated weaving on each side, about 6.5 inches long, beginning about 7.25 inches from each end.

An obijime is a narrow silk strap traditionally used to secure an obi knot. For American use, it can be used to secure a kimono for those who wear a kimono as a robe around the house, rather than the traditional obi. They are in good condition.

10% REFUND when you pay with PayPal, plus I am able to refund excess shipping—but only when you pay with PayPal. This will be calculated and refunded when I pack your order for shipping. Even if you don't have a PayPal account they offer you the option of using a credit card without opening an account, and it makes it MUCH easier for me to refund any excess shipping charge. Thank you for understanding!

INTERNATIONAL CUSTOMERS: I've had to raise my shipping, as Etsy shipping (if you don't pay with PayPal) is considerably more expensive than shipping through PayPal. I strongly suggest that you pay for your purchases from my shop with PayPal. If you pay with PayPal, you WILL get a refund, usually a nice one!!!

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

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 item 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.
