Blue Silk Ensemble & Himo
  • A blue silk kimono and haori ensemble, complete with lovely, blue silk himo (front tie on haori, usually bought separately). The colour is even on each garment, even though it may look shaded in the photos, I just don't have good lighting for taking photos.
  • This looks very stylish worn with a long sleeved sweater or tee shirt under it, the ends of the sleeves showing at the wrists
  • The haori has a silk lining, with exquisite  textile art of a view of Mount Fuji, with beautiful trees, a cottage and people walking up a sloping road
  • Wonderful quality. Entirely hand tailored. Top quality garments
  • The kikko (hexagonal) pattern in the weave is based on the pattern on a turtle’s shell and represents longevity
  • Men’s casual wear kimono & haori
  • Due to the weight of this ensemble, it may be sent by courier, e.g Evri, instead of ParcelForce, whose prices are prohibitively high
  • Awase (lined). Both garments are lined
  • May have shitsuke, which is large, white stitching put in by the Japanese to keep garment seams neat during long periods of storage, it just gets pulled out prior to wearing

Sizing:
Japanese clothing is usually of adjustable fit, being mostly wrap-over or tie-to-fit items, so most garments fit a range of sizes. Because of this (and only really knowing my own size anyway) I can't really advise anyone on the fit. Please judge fit from the measurements given.Measure from centre back of neck, along shoulder and down the arm to the wrist, then double that and compare it with the sleeve end measurement to judge sleeve length. If shown modelled, the woman in the photos is 125 cm from wrist to wrist.

  • Kimono require a sash to hold them closed, this is always bought separately. Men usually wear a kaku obi with their kimono or, casually at home, a soft heko obi.

    Sizing: Japanese clothing is usually of adjustable fit, being mostly wrap-over or tie-to-fit items, so most garments fit a range of sizes.

    Judge fit from the measurements given. Check length given for the garment, then measure from base of back of your neck down to judge that length on you. Also measure from centre back of neck, along shoulder and down the arm to the wrist, then double that and compare it with the sleeve end measurement to judge sleeve length.

    Cleaning: Be very cautious about washing kimonos. All cleaning is done entirely at your own risk, as is standard with all vintage garments and items. I would advise only dry cleaning for silk ones and for most synthetic ones, cotton ones may be dry cleanable too but select your dry cleaner carefully and take their advice before deciding if you want to try dry cleaning it. 

    Colour: Be aware that different monitors display colour slightly differently. Therefore the colour in the photos and description is a guide only.
