Cranes & Clouds Blue Kimono
  • A blue, synthertic textile kimono, with a glorious design of cranes, clouds flowers and pines, with gold detailing.
  • Washable - hand wash in cool water with colour tetergent or soap flakes. do not rub, do not soak, do not use a detergent for whites. You can machine spin excess water out at the end, you can also give it a final rinse and spin but put it into a pillowcase, with the end tied closed (stout rubber band?) as the sleeves can tangle in a machine and get ripped off. If ironing, only use a cool iron and place a damp cloth between the iron and the kimono fabric
  • May have white shitsuke (basting stitches) around some edges, on the outside of the garment. These are simply to keep it neat during storage and just get pulled out before use
  • Made and bought in Japan



An hitoe (unlined) kimono, this kimono is actually lined on the lower half, allowing the upper half of the body to remain cooler

Synthetic fabric. Can be gently hand washed and machine spun, then hung to dry. Do not rub surface or leave to soak. Use a cool iron, with a damp cloth between iron and fabric

  • 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. 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. 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

    Some of my garments have white stitching (shitsuke) round the outside edges to keep the edges flat during long periods of storage, these stitches just get pulled out before wearing the garment

    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

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