(Each Package is Unique)
These packages are comprised of girls-only sized under-kimonos which are called nagajuban. They are mostly made of silk with most of the silks being of the finer kinsha type; They come either in solid red or vermillion (known as shuiro, a color traditionally believed to ward off evil spirits); Most of these are still wearable and all have some sort of traditional interwoven motifs such as cranes, clouds, geometrics, flowers etc. If we have it, we may add one hadajuban (half-length type nagajuban).
These are whole garments and most can be worn informally but are also used by designers and textile artists in various ways. While sold as fabric cutters, many of our customers wear these, and some of our commercial buyers resell them as retail vintage kimono. Please note that these are vintage so they may have some stains, holes, imperfections and wrinkles -- but none are what you would call as 'rag' level vintage.
| Cultural Note About Girls Nagajubans:
These garments are made for wear as an under garment for the ceremonial kimonos worn by children at ages 7-5-3, a holiday called Shichi-Go-San(7-5-3 years old). These are made so that they are taken in for the three year old and five year old, and let out each age. So this means that many have the length of the seven year old, just taken in. Since the holiday is once a year, families traditionally take them up or let them down for the age of the child. Not all are of this type, but these are most common. The largest ones, when let out, might fit USA girls Junior sizes. Keep in mind that these are for Japaness children of decades ago, so are smaller in stature.
This is a BY-POUND product, not based on piece-count, so there are an average of 8 to ten (10) garments per 10 Lbs package.
