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.

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.

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.
