YokoDana Kimono's Statement about COVID19:

We have been on lock-down here in Delaware USA for over three months now and been more than busy filling orders the whole time. It appears that folks are gathering things for projects to do -- hobby or business-wise -- during the Pandemic. We ourselves -- including family in USA and Japan -- are well. We want to thank the many who have been writing to check in on us, your thoughtfulness is much appreciated. We also have been getting many questions about the status of our supplies of vintage kimonos (for our bulk kimono packages) so want to make all aware of how the Pandemic is affecting our business:

  • SUPPLIES: Our operations of gathering bulk kimonos all around Japan continue. It is, however, slowed considerably since February. As a result, we are simply not able to bring in kimono supplies as often as we did pre-COVID. We anticipate this will continue for at least 3 months. In short, we will continue selling our bulk kimonos during the Pandemic, but due to increased times between import shipments arrival here in USA, main packages will often show as 'sold out'. If interested in a particular bulk package, we recommend checking site often as inventory changes from day to day.

    Another factor slowing things down is that we ship these into USA via ship and then rail inside USA, not by postal means. There are slowdowns at the port, and also in the shipment sequences from the port to our location in Delaware. So -- you'll be able to get your bulk packages, but more slowly and for some customers in lower amounts.
