My Old Faithfuls

In my kimono closet I have ‘old faithfuls’ – kimono and obi that I repair and wear constantly and would feel lost without.

1. My komon kofurisode – such a cheap buy at $20 and here it is getting ready for another wear:

2. My pink rose cotton fukuro obi – light and easy to manipulate I wear this obi often 🙂

I have lots of items I love in my collection. My geisha hikizuri are very dear to me as they are prize items in my collection. However the kimono items closest to my heart are ones I wear a lot.
