The New Year is almost here, during this time there is a lot of self reflection to be done. We like to look back through the year and reflect on the beauty and good of the world. One of our favorite things to do is create a list of our top favorite Japanese kimono we sold. As many of you understand most authentic kimono are one of a kind, and are vintage or antique.

Recently a very beautiful Japanese kimono passed through our store, it was a lovely dark blue and covered in origami cranes with metallic accents. This kimono was lovely, and we had a strong response to it. It was no surprise when the kimono quickly found a home. The new owner has sent us some lovely photos to share with everyone of the origami crane kimono and their take on kitsuke with it. Devin has been features by us before, specifically for their spider queen kitsuke.
There is a very interesting and thriving kimono community on Instagram. As one would image it is largely based in Japan, and is rich in photos. From time to time we discover a Instagram account with some amazing kitsuke! In particular the Instagram account for Yukari is full of obi that are mind blowing awesome and rather complex.
