Thank you very much for visiting our site! Hello from Japan! We began our business on ebay inand we sent lots of Japanese antique textiles and kimonos from Osaka to all over the world for nearly a decade.
Is anyone know where is the place to buy second hand silk or antique kimono in Osaka. They do not accept visitors - checked that our last year. Kimonoya in Denden town, Nippombashi,Osaka city.
I love re-using vintage kimono silk for new garments. I really love re-using kimono silk! You can tell it is meant to be worn as an under-layer because of the white collar cover.
Sale now on! Sale subject to some shipping delays. The entire Niwa collection has been created from genuine vintage Japanese kimonos, with the exquisite hand crafted textiles upcycled into a limited edition of lingerie.
Sold Out. A beautiful patchwork of pure silk kimono pieces help create this beautifully simple scarf. Due to the age of the vintage kimonos, the majority are preworn and preloved.
If you have ever looked at a picture or painting of a Japanese person before the Meiji era they will undoubtedly be wearing a kimono depending upon the season. Mainly during the Meiji era, because of expanding trade to different countries and globalisation, the Japanese government heavily influenced people into wearing western style clothing. As a result, kimono are now primarily worn during special occasions like weddings, funerals, coming-of-age ceremonies and so on.
Black Silk jacket "Mountain Sunset" from Japanese kimono. Size Medium. Blue and gray silk jacket from vintage kimono, Size Small.
It's made from vintage Japanese Kimono called "Kuro-Tomesode". The Kuro-Tomesode is of course made of Silk. When mothers of the bridegroom and the bride wear Kimonos for the wedding ceremony, they traditionally wear "Kuro-Tomesode".
Well, after the To Celebrate Life scarf went to the highest bidder when the auction closed, a disappointed bidder still needed a scarf. So, I made this one. First, a trip to the kimono rack to pick out something really beautiful.
