£80.00Price
  • Beautiful  1900-1950s unlined Kimono Juban in very soft and fine crepe silk with a lovely drape.

    It has a cream background with a red and pink Asanohna (hemp leaf pattern) and Uchiwa (non folding fan) printed design 

     

    A Juban (or nagajuban) is an under -kimono worn to keep the main outer garment cleaner.  They are usually made of very fine silk with a white or coloured collar that could be removed for washing.  A replacement collar of vintage 60s kimono crepe silk in a bright floral design has been added. The original white cotton collar is still underneath, which is usual for a juban. New fabric pieces were traditionally added to the collar when the fabric was dirty. This meant that the whole garment did not have to be cleaned, just the collar

    Shown tied with our Green/Orange  Shibori Obi-Sash.  This is not included in the price but may be available to buy seperatley.

    They do sell out quite quickly but we aim to introduce new pieces as and when nice fabrics become available.

    We make them ourselves from vintage Japanese kimono fabrics as an alternative to a formal stiff Obi. 

     

    This is a unique, hand-made pre-worn vintage garment from Japan which may show small experience marks from a previous life.  This is a normal characteristic of vintage items and we hope you will embrace these and wear the garment with love in the knowledge that you are adding to its history.  We will do our best to inform you of any larger marks which may affect the look of the garment when worn.
