Japanese textiles are adorable and so much fun to look at. The fabric pieces offered here are all taken from vintage & old kimono or haori. As a patchwork or handcraft material, these fabrics will be excellent. We also offer `karinui'(temporary-stitched) kimono fabrics. Kimono are made from a bolt of textile, and these fabrics are cut out for kimono and stitched roughly for matching the patterns. They are not `finished' kimono. Of course you can make a kimono for yourself--and these fagbrics can be a fancy dress or skirt with its unique designs. They are easily taken apart, so it wil be excellent for other handcraft, too.
