Announcement   I buy authentic Japanese kimonos and carefully deconstruct them into the fabric pieces you see in my shop.

All measurements are listed in inches...please feel free to send me a message if you would like a conversion into yards, metres, paw prints, or any equivalent measuring system!

I always try to convey the texture in the close up photo, but please read fabric descriptions carefully, because measurements and silk textures vary.

This a lovely piece of fabric but my experience with the seller was not good. It took over two weeks to come and non communication from the seller meant I had to go through Etsy to resolve the issue, causing me unnecessary hassle. The seller also did not put enough postage on the package so I had the very annoying job of driving to my nearest collect office and paying £1.50 excess charge. This was later refunded, through Etsy, but not the petrol costs of collecting it. Very unsatisfactory. Dr Parry

About

Kimono Addiction

I buy authentic Japanese kimonos and carefully deconstruct them into the fabric pieces you see in my shop.

They are all unworn kimonos from the 60s, 70s and 80s, and with every kimono I uncover new designs, colours and textures; from stunning cherry blossom patterns to funky geometrics and traditional Japanese landscapes, which feature waterfalls and pagodas.

I try to show the fabrics in natural light and I love experimenting with different angles to capture the unique beauty and texture of every kimono.

I use my personal stash in my quilting projects and I love the thought that I am giving new life to something beautiful, which has never had a chance to shine.

Welcome to The Lucky White Cat.

Vintage Kimono Fabrics might have some blemishes (some thread left, age spots, holes, smudges, etc.). I try to highlight any imperfect areas in the description box and the photos, but please keep it in mind; if you want flawless fabrics, these might not be the ones for you!

I use my personal stash in my quilting projects and I love the thought that I am giving new life to something beautiful, which has never had a chance to shine.
