Below are comments from a few of my satisfied customers, for which I am most grateful.
Mr & Mrs Smith
Deborah Smith, Surrey, UK.
I thought I had set myself quite a challenge when I wanted to get married in a kimono and we were planning the wedding within 2 months. Without your website it definitely would not have been possible. You had such a lovely selection of authentic kimonos it was difficult to chose... My husband was really impressed. He loved the kimono instead of the traditional bridal gown, it really added the joyous atmosphere to the day and a great talking point.
I'm sure I will be buying more from you in the future, happily browsing until then.
Above Deborah's comments is the wedding photo she sent to me. Deborah makes a most beautiful bride; graceful, elegant, ceremonial, striking and so very happy. The groom's red tie was well chosen to link with with the red in Debora's ensemble. I am most grateful to her for sending me the photo and for them allowing me to show it here.
I.Walker, St Albans, UK.
The two wonderful kimonos you see above were made from 2 tan (bolts of kimono textile, also called tanmomo) bought from my website. Ms Walker sent me photos of the finished garments and gave me permission to display them here, for which I am most grateful. I think she looks stunning in them and it is so nice that two unused bolts of kimono textile have finally become what they were intended for.
S. Cronk, London, UK.
The haori just arrived, super fast, thank you. It's absolutely gorgeous, I love it and shall enjoy wearing it. Thank you too for all the information you give on your site on care, dimensions, condition etc, it makes for more confident buying.
Thank you again, I couldn't be happier with the service and the haori.
S. Knowles, Leicester, UK.
Haori has arrived - it's lovely and she's really happy.
F. Ullathorne, Avon, UK.
The kimono arrived this morning, and I'm over the moon happy with it, it's so gorgeous! Thank you sooo much!
A. Williams, Aylesbury, UK.
These clothes are just TOO amazing, one of the [haori] jackets has already been pinched by my daughter, and now my mum is after one as well! Its very rare to find clothes that are lusted after by three generations!
Annie Groeneweg, Hoofddorp, Netherlands.
The package with the 2 items has been delivered today. They are even better than I had expected. I am very pleased with your website and especially your service.
Daniel Cis, Montevideo, Uruguay.
The kimonos have just arrived to my home and they are wonderful, better than the image of the website. My sister loved them and finally we were able to see the perfection of the sewing an the "simplicity" of the piece. Thank you very much! I will definitely buy one for me too.
Y. Whitehouse, Cannock, UK.
Collected the kimono from PO yesterday and it's gorgeous. This is the second kimono that I've bought from you recently and must say reallly pleased with them and shalln't hesitate to recommend your website.
S. Oneil, UK.
I just wanted to say that you sell the most beautiful garments. My boyfriend bought me a Haori as a surprise present because he knows how much I love everything Japanese and it has arrived this morning. It is truly the most beautiful thing I have ever owned.
Thank you so much for making a love of mine so accessible! I know that I will be buying from you for years to come!

What brilliant service! The kimono arrived yesterday beautifully packaged and thanks for the helpful instructions. It's perfect for my daughter to wear to play Katisha in The Mikado. I'll definitely recommend you to friends!

Alan Molina, Bristol, UK.
Just to tell you the items are amazing. I was expecting them to look older but they are as good as new. thank you very very much.
Lynne Ann Morse, Belgium.
I pointed one of my Japanese friends at the Wafuku site, to get her feedback on a couple of combinations I was considering - and she was very enthused about the range and quality of the products on offer. She told me that she couldn't stop browsing, and eventually had a look at everything on the site... (which made me feel a bit guilty - we're both supposed to be studying!)
Soraya Lemsatef, Liverpool, UK.
I have ordered a couple of things from you via your site and just wanted to express my personal appreciation for all of your lovely things and informative site.
I love the level of detail included, the couture-like quality, and your obvious passion for these beautiful items. The wealth of information you make available –including the very useful glossary– is ace for someone like me who already has some base information but wishes to know more.
Anyway, I just wanted to say that I think what you're selling is wonderful. I love that they are mostly vintage so perhaps have some provenance, and I'm sure I'll be treating myself again very soon. Arigato.
C. Townhill, London, UK.
Gorgeous item, fast delivery, very happy customer. Will definitely deal with again.
