Dear Newsletter readers,
Hello, this is Mari. We hope you enjoy our newsletter. This is my first newsletter in 2018.
I'll do my best to deliver more interesting topic to you!
Those who have received packages from Ichiroya may know that we put a small piece of kimono fabric in them. Some are textured tsumugi silk, some has shibori pattern on them, some are shinny smooth silk. All of them are silk. We put them as a small gift to our customers. Also, we would like to introduce many different types of kimono silk to you. We hope you like them.
Small pieces (remnant) can be very charming material, of course using nice part of old kimono or bolts can be a lot of fun, even though they ave some flaw.
We have received some pictures from our customers who use those small pieces of kimono silk as materials of their hand craft.
Ms. R in Australia uses the fabric to add exotic feeling to the black shirts. NICE!
Ms. B in Nagoya, Japan makes a vest using the small pieces of fabric. Look how colorful her vest is!
I believe that there are more people using those kimono fabrics in different ways.
We are glad to know that they did not end up in the trash!
If you like Japanese kimono fabric, and thinking about using it for something, we have some interesting fabrics. Please check!
