ANTIQUE JAPANESE SILK REBORN
The VK story
At Vintage Kimonos we combine the elegance, style and precision of classic British tailoring with the ultimate luxury of Japanese antique silk. We carefully deconstruct vintage Japanese kimonos and use the silk to make ladies and gentlemen's couture pieces, bespoke bags and homeware.
Why kimono silk is so special
Antique kimono silk was made using a variety of techniques. The lustrous silk was woven into many forms, from exquisite jacquard to delicate crepe. Then, over several months, kimono artists created the spectacular patterns using a combination of crafts.
