kojima denim

Finally on its way to me a bokashi (gradient) indigo dyed denim kimono straight from the center of Japan’s denim making ateliers Kurashiki in Kojima prefecture. These kimono are preta in terms of the tailoring (there are only a few size options available, the size L is 165 cm long), but the dyeing takes place only when you order a kimono and no two are exactly alike. This also means it can take 3-4 weeks of extra waiting for your bokashi denim kimono to ship.

Still I am so excited mine is finally on it’s way to me. It’s taken me about a year to finally decide I didn’t want to live without this kimono in my collection.
