Japanese Kimono Fabrics

Japan has always created some of the most incredible fabrics in the world. We usually have a variety of colors, weaves, and types, from traditional to unusual. Most are excellent condition vintage silks, wools and cottons. Some are cut to your order from a bolt of vintage fabric, and some are pieces that used to be kimono, now taken apart for you.  The selection always changes - most are one of a kind and they often sell out quickly. Find your treasure!

Care: your dry cleaner may be the best resource, although many people have success hand washing in cold water and mild shampoo, after testing a small piece first. However, chirimen weaves are prone to shrinking and color bleeding, so consider dry cleaning those.
