Transform vintage kimono into the mini sized collection.
We transform the vintage kimono when we find the unique textile before we run out the complete textile. In the meanwhile we have many "mini" kimono in the atelier. You may not size the mini kimono exactly from the picture. They're the palm sized.
We introduced some Sukiyabukuro or juzubukuro before in the atelier. Maybe some of you might have seen these kimono already.
Let me show you some of our favorite collection.
So-shiborizome Haoriji (tie dyeing haori coat)
It's "mini" size but the quality is the same as original. You need a little bit skills to cut the fabrics and match the pattern.
This kimono is made from tie dyeing haori coat. Also used for Handbag in our last post.
Girl's festive dress before WWII
This colorful kimono was the festive dress for child around 1943. You can picture cheerful and happy kids in that time.
Girl's kimono for semi formal occasion
This kimono in pale pink with flowers is made from girl's kimono in early Showa period. It's telling us a lot about the fashion trend in that time.
Young bride's kimono in 1927
Personally the last one is my favorite. We found this kimono in the drawers of a young bride around 1927. The yellow flower is very simple but shows us powerfulness of a woman.
