What's the good news? Well, it appears that the word about the special value and quality of our bulk vintage Japanese kimonos is out world-wide. Based on customer feedback, the volume of orders from around the world and our web visits and tracking data for yokodana.com -- people love our bulk vintage Japanese kimono packages. So much in fact that we're sold out! We're very happy of course about this on one level, but... and there's that word...
The Bad News is that in spite of our more than doubling of our own procurement in Japan for our bulk packages we have -- for the first time in years -- run out of inventory for our bulk vintage kimono packages (Summary Page is HERE.)
More good news is that we have been very happy to have had many finds of outstanding vintage Japanese fabrics of all sorts. We have more of those than we can realistically add to our website (in the fabrics-by-pieces/lots collection area HERE.)
In the last few weeks we have added dozens of additional fabrics by piece/yard/roll etc., including some rare antique World War II ohshima fabrics, silks, cottons, wool, asa (hemp) and kasuri (ikat). We have a great deal of these and are steadily adding new offerings almost daily.
As for the supply of our bulk vintage kimono packages, here's what we've done about it, in notice posted to our bulk package summary page:
