Description
 

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

Sleeve #1 is light purple with a swirling water pattern jacquard. Some swirls are painted with a darker purple. Some blemishes. Silk. Lined.
Sleeve #2 is an ice blue with scattered florals in shades of purple that were no doubt made with a katagami stencil. Some blemishes. Silk. Lined.
Sleeve #3 has a hexagon design in cream on purple. Some blemishes. Silk? Lined.

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.
