Edo-Komon is a Komon dyed in Edo (Tokyo). It seems to be plain when seen from a distance, but according to the nearby it knows that a very fine pattern is given. Craftmen use dye patterns and dye them manually.


Kawari-Chirimen is a one of Chirimen woven by devising special twist yarn to overcome the drawback of shrinkage. It is characterized by being hard to shrink and less likely to wrinkle. Chirimen is a fabric that uses yarn with almost no twist warp threads, and is alternately woven with tight S-twisted and tight Z-twisted weft threads. Therefore, with scouring, the cloth shrinks and the texture appears on the surface of the fabric with desired irregularities.


Important Notice:

Vintage Kimonos may have stains, spots or fading. Conditions vary. Stains and spots may or may not come off with dry cleaning. Some are not really noticeable, but some are. Carefully check the photos before you commit to your purchase.


I ship orders with reusable packaging whenever possible to reduce environmental impact. Your purchase will be carefully shipped. I appreciate your understanding.
