Vintage kimono silk top

Made from vintage Meisen with a lovely blue iris and silver plant pattern. The “Meisen” style silk kimono was the most popular garment during the 1920’s and 1930’s when people still wore kimono daily in Japan.
The main characteristic of Meisen is its pattern, made by pre-dyed threads. As the fabric is woven the surface decoration appears as a shimmering, soft-edged pattern.

Enjoy this one of a kind top all year round, even cooler seasons with long sleeve thermal underneath.

Dear customers,
Hena Hena's creations are upcycled with vintage silk kimonos which are impoirted from Japan and they are carefully unpicked by myself. I mainly use kimonos from 1950s and before. Because of their age of fabrics there could be some flaws like small marks, pinholes and colour fade etc. but they have incredibly graceful taste that only vintage kimonos have. I hope you enjoy and love the beauty of vintage kimono silks including their histories to be embraced.
Thank you for supporting my small handmade business.
