We came across these pictures on a Japanese-language website, Youtouch.com. Starting in 2017 and then most recently (October 7, 2021), they explain how these dresses were upcycled, made from 1950s-1960s vintage kimonos, deconstructed and made into both wedding gowns and other fashionable dresses/gowns; some are then made available as rentals (in Japan). To see full pictures of these lovely dresses please visit 2017 blog HERE , and 2021 blog HERE.

Also, in early 2020, one of our customers (Below, Pam T., Canada) shared with us her own wedding kimono made from our "A Package" vintage silk women's kimonos:
