Kimono

I put all the interesting kimono up on flickr in their own set. So you should be able to click on that and go through the slide show and hit the 'i' button and get information on each one. If you have questions, feel free to comment on the photo or just comment here, and I'll do my best.

There's a few less interesting kimono I have, too, but I'd forgotten I had a very plain quilted one that I love to pieces. Literally. I have to resew the shoulder seams, I think, and it'll be useable again this winter. Happy me.



But you gotta click to get more of the details, as most of these have an accompanying detail photo, too. Click any picture and it'll take you to the picture and you can click on the set to the right.

The Gold Ikat

The cloth is made by dyeing the thread, first, and THEN weaving it. In order... gah, it makes my head hurt to think of it. So, no, the picture isn't fuzzy, it's just that the threads don't line up perfectly. So it's all the more unique for it.

Another shot

The sheerness of the one black men's haori, you can see a chrysanthumum design through it.

I'll leave Jet's haori picture for when he's actually wearing it. He might bring my kendo stick with him as... accessory. *laughs*
