A lovely selection of new haneri were just added to our online store! Many of these brand new haneri are made from fabric sold exclusively in Japan, and are made by Japanese companies.

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.

We are committed to being a green business. One of the things we have done is ditch plastic bags, and offer our customers a nice reusable shopping bag while shopping with us at shows.

Our friend over at Neko Creations is creating the exclusive koi art that will appear on our shopping bags!
