    About

    A hand-crafted tie featuring 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.

    This tie has a collage design of assorted kimono fabrics. Due to the nature of the craftsmanship, no two are alike and one will be selected at random when you place your order.

    A cultured addition to your wardrobe or ideal as a gift.
