"Painted Stripes" Japanique Robe


The artistry of this kimono is very subtle! Those think vertical bands were painted on by hand, across the entire length of the bolt, before it was cut and sewn. See the varying widths of and between the lines. How meditative this must have been for the artist...

The colors are a light pink with cocoa-colored stripes. And the fiber - an elegant raw silk with tiny, shiny nubs - must have been quite expensive.

We have modified a woman's vintage kimono slightly to create this Japanique Boutique Robe. Shortening the length to 45" makes it easier to wear as a robe or cover up.

These also look great worn open as a kimono style long jacket.

We made a matching belt from the remnant, but the belt is narrow (3-4") and the length is 78" -- not a wide obi-like sash you'd normally see with a kimono.
