Tsumugi and omeshi additions

Two new gallery additions today:

o Pastel peony tsumugi

o Woven stripes kimono (most likely omeshi)

The first is a lovely spring kimono in my (tall) size and with graceful longer sleeves, a happy find for me. The silk has a wonderfully crisp yet soft feel to it. The second kimono is, well, weird! I’ve never seen anything quite like the motifs in the stripes on it. It’s done in a rough silk crepe that’s probably a type of omeshi.

Hopefully I’ll have time to try them on soon and see how they look. Kimono always take on added personality when worn, one of their many charms.
