|Cushion cover made from vintage fine wool kimono fabric|
They are T-shaped, straight-lined robes worn so that the hem falls to the ankle, with attached collars and long, wide sleeves. Kimonos are wrapped around the body, always with the left side over the right and secured by a sash called an obi, which is tied at the back.

|Lavender sachet made from silk kimono remnant|
As the kimono fabric that I buy is taken from vintage kimonos, these means that the cushions etc that I make are only made in ones or twos making them unique. It also means that my stash of kimono fabrics can only get bigger, if I don't bid for them when I see them, I won't get another oppoortunity.
