We salvaged three vintage Japanese kimono fabric sleeves from haori that were too damaged to sell for wearing or display.

Sleeve #1 is a sage green with a slightly textured wave design. Some blemishes. Silk.
Sleeve #2 has a repeat of soft florals, stems, and leaves. Batik crackle. Some blemishes. Silk.
Sleeve #3 has a cream background with bright countryside florals and foliage created with a katagami stencil and hand-shaded. Some blemishes. Silk.

Where do they come from? We deconstruct damaged, plain or just-too-funky-to-wear garments and use most of that fabric for our Japanique Boutique line of gift and accessories, but we save the sleeves for you!

Each sleeve length varies from 14"-24" but open the seam to double that length. See photos for size of each sleeve. Most are lined (bonus fabric!). We try to note any significant defects in the photos but other slight blemishes are possible. Vintage kimono fabrics are best for piecework in case imperfections need to be worked around.

See video below where Nancy explains the how and why of our Sleeve Sets, as well as video links to learn more about rozome (batik) and katagami.
