Our cross neckline kimono tops made of high quality Ise cotton, now features traditional Japanese Shibori tie dye print. The design is inspired by the undergarment worn by the imperial family during the Heian Period. We recommend layering with our 3/4 sleeve tops.
This garment utilizes the original width of tenugui hand towels which are sewn together to create the bodice. Batting is added to the neckline to simulate traditional kimono collars. Kohaze (slip clasp) closure keeps the neckline from being too wide.
・Made of Ise cotton produced in Tsu City, Mie Prefecture, well known for their traditional crafts
・Each piece is bound by Shibori artisan Kazuki Tabata and hand dyed by craftsman Mr.Kimura, making no two alike.

※Due to being hand crafted uniquely, each piece will have varying print placement that cannot be specifically selected.
※Due to the nature of the dye used, color saturation and some minor print discrepancy may exist.
※Garment may have a noticeable scent at first, which poses no harm to human health and will dissipate when aired and washed.
※Due to the natural texture of material, minor color discrepancies may exist where there is texture.
※Neps (bumpy unevenness) occur naturally in cotton; this is not a defect.

※Do not wash with white or light colored garments to avoid color transfer.
※Do not leave soaking; air dry immediately after wash.
