A hand-crafted scarf consisting of a collage of vintage kimono fabrics.
Kimonos are a type of traditional Japanese clothing. They are based on a simple wrap-over robe tied with a sash, and are worn by both men and women. However, the kimono had no pockets. Women could carry things in their wide sleeves, while men used their obi (sash belt) to hang various small accessories called sagemono ('hanging things'). These included inrō (medicine or seal containers), smoking sets, yatate (writing sets), purses, and pouches for special equipment. They were hung by a cord kept in place by a small toggle called a netsuke.
Because each scarf is made from different swathes of fabric, each one is a unique one-of-a-kind piece and colours will vary from the one shown.
A cultured addition to your wardrobe or ideal as a gift.
