'Hamura' Kimono

  • This striking, textured silk Kimono from Kyoto features black and white shibori (tie dye) with red highlights and is lined in white (acrylic - easier to care for) and plum red silk.

    Hamura means leafy foliage - to us the design suggests peeking through leaves at a festival of glowing lanterns or fireworks. It could of course represent the white and pink mochi balls found attached to branches as part of the new year celebration. Whatever way you frame it this kimono says 'party!'. How will you be celebrating in your new kimono?

    Perhaps wear as an open jacket over a t-shirt with jeans or a black top and flowing wide leg pants or instantly glam up a simple black dress by tying at the front or leaving open.

    Pristine condition.

    Note - Please Read before purchase:

    Kimonos are generally made, for wearing traditionally tied with an Obi sash, on smaller framed, not too tall bodies - however if worn as an open jacket there is generally enough room in the sleeve area and in length to be worn by several sizes larger and taller than originally intended. However there is no guarantee it will sit perfectly on your body shape. Let's call it freestyle!

    As we take every measure to ensure you are advised of the correct sizing prior to purchase - we ask you to please be aware that we don't refund for garments chosen in error. Please don't hesitate to contact us with any queries regarding dimensions before purchase.

    All vintage and antique kimono and haori were hand made. Therefore you may see some loose, temporary stitches around edges of sleeves, hems and collars on our kimonos. These stitches, called shitsuke ito, are kept in place to assist the valuable kimono in retaining its shape and alignment. In Japan the stitches are normally removed before wearing then restitched again after cleaning and before storage, for the same reasons as above. We like the look of authenticity they bring so feel free to retain them if you like, or remove them before wearing.
