Note about this page:
We like to post on our web site when people have creatively used our vintage Japanese kimonos and fabrics in their work, so we are happy to share here pictures and emails from Kay of Virginia (USA). Below are her emails to us about her creations, followed by various pictures:
Update from Kay: May 31, 2023:
My beautiful Kasuri order arrived just now, in perfect condition. It’s such beautiful fabric and I’ll really enjoy making something equally beautiful with it!
And I am overwhelmed with the equally beautiful, and generous, extra bits you include, as always. I appreciate and use every scrap, I can assure you! I have so many ideas already!
When I ordered the lovely ooshima tsumugi silk, you included additional fabric that matched the silk. I used them both to make a jacket, using the extra pieces for sleeves and a facing for a lightweight Japanese-style summer jacket (based on noragi farmer's work jacket style, YL).
I meant to send you this photo when I made it.
So thank you for your long-term business and your generosity of spirit. Receiving a package from you always makes my day!!!!
