2017 Endless Knot   e-mail

  

 

The traditional Japanese kimono has wide, half-way sewn sleeves. There is no seam between the top and the skirt, and there are no pleats in the skirt. Pure cotton kimonos lose length during washing. A fold in the waist areas allows for lengthening. Kimonos are ankle length, but you can specify whatever length you prefer.

Suggested fabric choices for the kimono are:

         For ceremonial use white cotton such as percale or high thread count per inch white cotton.

         For everyday use grey fabric in 100% cotton such as grey chambray
 

Please see the Order Form to provide measurements. The amount of needed fabric can be estimated more exactly once we receive your measurements. In general:

         If the fabric is 55 or 60" wide, 5 yards is required

         If the fabric is 45" wide, 6 yards is required
