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

Sleeve #1 is a lovely gray-green with a brushstroke design and tiny white strokes that suggest movement. Silk. Lined.
Sleeve #2 is a pinkish white but with an abstract floral design on one side that was created using lacquered metallic threads (urushi) that include a green that goes well with the green in Sleeve #1. Some blemishes. Silk. Lined.
Sleeve #3 has an overall shibori design in white on red and on one side only there is a wide band element filled with bamboo, flowers, and more. 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, as well a video to learn more about shibori.
