A NOTE ON OUR PICTURES:
Our pictures here are of a recent sample 10 Lbs (4.54Kg) "A Package", shown first as pile of 9 garments, then close-ups of same kimonos spread out. PICTURES ARE SAMPLES of type and quality in each package(10 Lbs, average 7 to 8 garments /10 Lbs -- Each Package is Unique)
"A" PACKAGE WOMEN'S KIMONO, BUNDLE DESCRIPTIONS:
1. KIMONO BUNDLE CONTENT:
We are selling this bundle as cutters, average 7-8 garments per 10lbs package: Average 3-4 long kimono and 3-4 short kimono coats (haori, michiyuki) per ten pounds. Each bundle is unique. When you take apart these kimonos and short coats you will get about 90 yards of the outer fabric -- average width 14 inches; Inner liners add additional yardage, almost 30 more yards of liner fabric. At least 90% of the outer garment fabrics are usable for projects; Bundle is meant for cutting, artwork, design, DIY, crafts etc., sold as fabric supply, though many customers use for casual vintage wear.
Selections are different for every package: We put together an assortment which is a balance of warm and cold colors and varied designs; the fabric weights range from light to heavy; Since these are from the 1950's to 1980's the designs and motifs are considered as classical, traditional, and highly varied Japanese historical motifs; even a solid fabric will often be interwoven in the same sorts of traditional Japanese motifs.
2. FABRIC CONTENTS:
Mostly silks, silk-blends (synthetic & silk) with a few all-synthetic fabrics if they are especially nice.
We do NOT include any of the following type fabrics: cotton,muslin and commonly seen non-Japanese-made synthetic robes(off-shore sellers) which are called 'kimono' by many -- but which are not truly Japanese kimono -- We never have those type -- ever;
When on-hand, we include a luxurious type of fine silk called 'kinsha', as well as the following: Meisen silk (ikat-like weave from 1930s-1950s) Ro,(skip-weave, summer silk), shibori, Ohshima and other special older vintage varieties when we have them.
3. MOTIFS,PATTERNS & DESIGNS:
Traditional motifs include the following: Flowers, fans, butterflies, birds, Imperial items ( such as --flower cart, Imperial procession items, banners, treasure mallets and gift boxes); also, toys, origami, cranes, waves, streams, bamboo thickets; Kimono makers historically also include themes from wood block prints of 1600 to 1800's, including tsunami wave, mountains and country villas with streams, waves (often stylized in various fashions) and geometric designs. In addition, even when a kimono fabric is solid (no secondary colors, motif or design), entire garments are often interwoven with these same lovely designs. Also, many classical kimonos have a subtle beauty and nuance, perhaps an acquired taste, but rich in layout and arrangements in the fabrics.
