Kimono Fabric & Fabric Bundles
Upcycle Kimono Fabric
Japanese Kimono Materials:
Silk, Cotton, Polyester, Rayon, Wool, Denim
The majority of the kimono in stock is vintage to antique pieces sourced directly from Japan. While many of the kimono we have for sale are ideal for wearing, occasionally we get in stock kimono that are unfit to wear and would be better used in upcycling. The products listed on this page are deeply discounted which reflects their condition. Most often these older items are repurposed into the likes of bags, and interior design elements, some even become stylish neckties. Over the years we have sold a number of kimono to performance artists who use them as an extension of their artist expressions. More than just kimono are offered in our upcycle selection, there are also obi, and haori. Due to variations in monitor color settings we can not 100% guarantee the colors of our products. We do NOT accept returns or exchanges on these goods. All products are sold as-is.
Japanese Fabric Bundles
Japanese kimono are made from bolts of fabric that are not the same size as more western style bolts of fabric which vary between 45 and 60 inches in width. The bolt of a kimono is as thin as 12 inches to as high as 14 inches. Obviously, the kimono fabric bolt is much thinner than what many customers are used to. All the same, the highly prized and unique fabric found in kimono design is still to be treasured and is just as valuable, if not more so. Most of the pieces in our bundles will be roughly 13 x 18 inches, which can vary slightly based on the cut which is influenced by the design and any flaws on the fabric. Our fabric bundles are a wonderful way to acquire high-quality vintage fabrics such as silks, not otherwise found elsewhere. Due to variations in monitor color settings we can not 100% guarantee the colors of our products. We do NOT accept returns or exchanges on these goods. All products are sold as-is.
