Vintage Ladies Under-Kimono(Nagajuban)
(Average Count: 8-10 Garments / 10 Lbs)
Plus Actual Shipping Cost* (details below)
These packages are comprised of ladies and girls under-kimonos which are called nagajuban. They are mostly made of silk with occasional synthetic (mock-silk) and cotton with interwoven motifs throughout, to include classic traditional Japanese designs (see pictures above); These are whole garments and some can be worn informally and are also used by designers in various ways.
About color selections: Please keep in mind that the overwhelming majority of these vintage under-kimonos are made in reds and a color called shuiro (vermilion), an orange-red color, because traditionally this color is believed in Japan to ward off evil spirits / bring good luck. However, there are only a few other colors of vintage nagajuban. We mix them in when available but they are increasingly rare. So please note the predominance of red / shuiro, all with interwoven patterns and designs.(see sample pictures); Please see more details on this below:
This package is usually in the following assortment:
2 pieces: shibori print, red.
2 pieces, w/combinations of red and bright colors, or other than red colors (as available).
2 pieces, Solid red, with interwoven patterns.
2 pieces, Red & white with motifs (Sometimes we put red and pink also if we have them, all with interwoven patterns.)
2 pieces, orange-vermillion with motifs interwoven.
COUNT: As we're selling by the pound, the count varies because each garment is different weight; usually around ten pieces per 10lbs package, effectively US$6.00 per garment.
NOTE ON SELECTION: Please note that the much-valued darker non-red nagajuban are increasingly rare, less seldom seen and we cannot assure that one will be in any package -- we add one whenever we have them.
Sold as CUTTERS, but some of our customers resell these as wearable; also, please keep in mind that these are vintage(old, recycled) please keep in mind that they may have some wrinkling, slight stains & imperfections, sometimes musty odor.
NOTE: PICTURES SHOWN ARE SAMPLES OF RECENT 10 Lbs NAGAJUBAN ORDER, first view is a pile, others are close-ups of the 10 Lbs; These pictures show the quality and types of nagajuban in each package. Each package is unique.
