Vintage Japanese Kimono Textiles
Established in 2012, CosimaOrimono is a product of my appreciation of vintage Japanese textiles, and kendo which I have practised for over 36 years. Over the years, I have amassed a great collection of vintage Japanese textiles, kimono, obi, katagami, dolls and other related paraphernalia. Besides collecting, I also enjoy quilting, dressmaking, restoring traditional Japanese dolls, sewing doll's kimono and making bags for katana, shinai, bokuto and bo.
At CosimaOrimono, you will find a wide selection of vintage and rare Japanese kimono textiles with unique colour, texture and pattern, some of which are one-of-a-kind art work by talented textile artisans. Many have been in my private collection for over 36 years. They are like pieces of artwork with a history.
I hope you will enjoy your visit and share my passion for these vintage kimono fabrics, and will find something you like which you could transform into another piece of beautiful artwork!
Thank you for looking.

I have a few general policies listed below. Please take a moment to read them over.
All my fabrics come from a smoke and pet free home and all have been sourced from Japan for my private textile collection and quilting/craft projects. However, I am selling off any excess which I do not need.
Please do read the description of the listings and take note of the measurements plus shipping costs to avoid any misunderstandings later. If there is anything you wish to know that you cannot find here please contact me and I'll be happy to help.
Accepted payment methods
Shipping charges include packaging and handling fees. I will email to confirm shipping.
SHIPPING TIMES (once dispatched):
UK ORDERS - Royal Mail First Class should take a couple of days but can sometimes take longer, particularly around bank holiday. If you would like your order ship with tracking, please add the shipping upgrade option at checkout
INTERNATIONAL ORDERS - All international orders will be dispatched via Royal Mail International Airmail service. This service should take around 7 - 21 working days, depending on the destination but can sometimes take longer due to stricter security screening by the custom or during festive periods such as Christmas and New Year or Bank Holidays. If you would like your order ship with tracking, please add the shipping upgrade option at checkout.
Once your order has been shipped, CosimaOrimono cannot be responsible for any transit or customs delays.
Please contact me if you are worried that your order is taking too long.
Please kindly note, it is sometimes difficult to set shipping rates for combined shipping due to the different weight of the fabrics. However, please shop with confidence as I always refund any shipping overage.
IMPORT DUTIES/TAXES etc: Please be aware that any import taxes are to be paid by the customer.
If you have any questions please get in touch.
Refunds and Exchanges
Buyers will pay for return shipping charges unless wrong item is sent.
Items being returned from outside the EU should be clearly marked "RETURN MERCHANDISE" so as not to attract VAT/customs charges. Otherwise, any VAT/custom charges I had to pay for the returned items will be deducted from the refund.
Additional policies and FAQs
Please also kindly note, vintage fabrics are rarely flawless. They often have some imperfection so if there is any prominent discolouration, patina/stain marks or pinholes, I will comment on it.
If you have any questions regarding my products, please do not hesitate to contact me via Etsy mail. I am always happy to send you extra information or photos.
