"A" PACKAGE WOMEN'S KIMONO, BUNDLE DESCRIPTIONS:
1. KIMONO BUNDLE CONTENT:
We are selling this bundle as whole-garment cutters, average 6-8 garments per 10lbs package. The majority are long kimonos with short kimono coats (haori, michiyuki) included when available.
Each bundle is unique. Bundle is meant for cutting, artwork, design, DIY, crafts, etc.; as vintage (used, recycled, upcycled) kimonos, there may be some imperfections, slight stains, but never rag quality -- At least 90% of the outer garment fabrics are usable for projects; Note also that while sold as fabric supply, we have many customers worldwide who resell these in vintage and other type shops or at events; many customers use for casual vintage wear, costume, Anime Cosplay, etc.
For our creative & designer customers, keep in mind that 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.
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 1950s to 1980s 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 and silk-blends (synthetic & silk) with the occasional all-synthetic fabrics if they are especially nice and in good condition.
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: Ro,(skip-weave, summer silk), shibori, 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 woodblock prints of 1600 to 1800s, 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.
