Lots of work is going on behind the scenes! A great new batch of authentic kimono, juban, obi, haori, and more just arrived from Japan! If you follow us on social media, you may have even seen this week some of our live unboxing videos as we open up the latest kimono shipment. Most typically our live kimono unboxing videos are spontaneously hosted on Facebook where we can live stream the event and talk to customers, educate people about Japanese kimono, and just have fun chatting with everyone. If you do not yet follow us on Facebook, you should!

That said this week our latest restock includes a nice selection of hanhaba obi, of which includes two unique beautiful antique silk obi.
We are working on restocking our casual Japanese kimono with lined kimono options, ideal for wearing in cooler winter weather. Mixed among that restock will be waves of beautiful vintage juban, and haori. You can expect over the next few days for kimono to drip drop into our online store. One by one they will crop up as we work on processing the new inventory from Japan while also trying to document them and get them listed.
As a note Youmacon 2020 in Detroit, Michigan will be online only this year. The show just announced earlier this week the change to the show, which means we will be taking part in the online Youmacon anime convention. You can join us from the comfort of your own home, and hang out with us. Watch more for details!
Below are a handful of the latest Japanese kimono added to our site this week, which includes a number of delightful silk kimono. Though these are the only ones online at the time of this post, there will be many more to come. In the coming week, we are focusing on a large kimono restock push which will include tomesode, yukata, iromuji, nagoya obi, juban, and men's kimono/yukata. In our back stock there are now 50+ men's juban alone waiting to be sorted, and listed online.
So, keep in touch with us and follow us on Facebook! See you at Youmacon online! Part 2 of the 100 Obi project will be coming soon and will include a lot of traditional kimono inspiration for you.
