Dear Newsletter readers,
Hello, this is Mari. It's my turn to write this week's newsletter.
I introduced some of our customer's works which they use those fabric
pieces we put into packages. I would like to share more works which
they use not only those small pieces, but also our fabric bolts and
Ms. B in Hannover, Germany made this accessory from our fabric pieces.
Aren't they cute? Although I see kimono fabric bolt everyday, I had no idea
to make something like them.
Mr. G in Tronto, Canada made pretty cool shirts from our fabric and Yukata.
These shirts was made from the shibori(tie-dye) fabric. As you may know,
shibori cotton is very soft and the bumpy texture is comfortable.
The collar and cuffs are well designed!

Look! How perfectly the zigzag pattern was matched!
Also, he made jackets from our "Sakiori" obi.
According to Mr. G, "The zipper is hidden, so all you see is the fabric design and texture.
The sleeves are dark, so the lighter Sakiori fabric stands out."
You may wonder who made the shirts and jackets.
Mr. G, himself? Maybe, maybe not.
Well, he is generous enough to share his hidden treasure.
Ms. Maegan McWade is his seamstress who made all those
cool clothes out of items from Ichiroya.
If you are interested in her work, visit her shop!
You may need to get material first!
Following, please check our shibori and sakiori fabrics!
If you make something special from Ichiroya items,

with our customers!
Thank you for reading til the end. Ciao!
