'Kiku Originals' upcycled handmade Japanese vintage silk short haori kimono in black with metallic design
This is an original hand made Japanese vintage silk short kimono which has been sympathetically adapted to give a slightly more contemporary look. The back has an elasticated channel and the front fastens with a half belt made from a piece of original vintage fabric from a deconstructed kimono. The fabric is asimple black base with flashes of metallic abstract shapes.
It is a pre-loved and worn garment and you will always find some evidence of wear in such as these. There is usually a moth repellent used to keep these pristine and the garment is straight from Japan where they have been stored to preserve them.
To maintain this garment for as long as possible it should be spot cleaned with wipes; aired for freshness and sprayed with fabric freshener. As a last resort it should be dry cleaned but it cannot be washed!
