Accessories: Japanese Kimono Himo Ties Information Page
Where We Sell Accessories:
We sell a variety of accessories but mostly at our in-person venues. Most of our accessories are hand-made in Japan by Yoko's sisters Honami Nakashima and Fumi Sakanashi, both of whom are professional level seamstresses. Honami is a master-level kimono maker for over 30 years, the other, Fumi, is an award-winning quilter in Japan. Yoko also makes some of these accessories throughout the year for sale at our venues.
We take our vintage kimono fabrics and make a wide variety of things, to include: scarves, mufflers, hair ties and pins, kanzashi, bags, purses, hangings, pin cushions and and decor pieces. These we sell exclusively at venues.
Also, we do offer himo through this website. We collect haori-himo (also called kumi-himo), the woven small ties for decorative securing of haori (short kimono coat), and sell them by special order from our website. We sell these in minimum lots of 12 for US$20.00 - $28.00, seasonally; Shipping to USA under 1 pound is free. These are also available at some of our shows by pair.
(New April 21, 2017: We have a limited supply of used vintage silk obijime, sold in lots of 5 for US$28.00 (USA shipping included).
