|NOTICE, effective August 4, 2020: We regret to announce that due to logistics issues during the Pandemic, we will be having a maximum order of one(1) 10lbs package of this product per two week period per customer until further notice. Also, we have suspended using our waitlist system during the Pandemic. We regret having to do this, but this enables us to fairly share our presently limited supplies among our many repeat customers and small business buyers. We hope things can return to 'normal' soon. We appreciate your understanding. Yoko Lewis|

Plus Actual Shipping Cost* (details below)
These packages are comprised of ladies and girls under-kimonos which are called nagajuban. They are mostly made of silk with occasional synthetic (mock-silk) and cotton with interwoven motifs throughout, to include classic traditional Japanese designs (see pictures above); These are whole garments and some can be worn informally and are also used by designers in various ways.
About color selections: Please keep in mind that the overwhelming majority of these vintage under-kimonos are made in reds and a color called shuiro (vermilion), an orange-red color, because traditionally this color is believed in Japan to ward off evil spirits / bring good luck. However, there are only a few other colors of vintage nagajuban. We mix them in when available but they are increasingly rare. So please note the predominance of red / shuiro, all with interwoven patterns and designs.(see sample pictures); Please see more details on this below:
This package is usually in the following assortment:
2 pieces: shibori print, red.
2 pieces, w/combinations of red and bright colors, or other than red colors (as available).
2 pieces, Solid red, with interwoven patterns.
2 pieces, Red & white with motifs (Sometimes we put red and pink also if we have them, all with interwoven patterns.)
2 pieces, orange-vermillion with motifs interwoven.
COUNT: As we're selling by the pound, the count varies because each garment is different weight; usuallyaround ten pieces per 10lbs package, effectively US$6.00 per garment.
NOTE ON SELECTION: Please note that the much-valued darker non-red nagajuban are increasingly rare, less seldom seen and we cannot assure that one will be in any package -- we add one whenever we have them.
Sold as CUTTERS, but some of our customers resell these as wearable; also, please keep in mind that these are vintage(old, recycled) please keep in mind that they may have some wrinkling, slight stains & imperfections, sometimes musty odor.
