HOW IT'S MADE
This kimono is made in the USA with luxurious silk charmeuse textile and has a soft drape. Sheen on the outside and muted on the inside. Slow crafted by hand for several days. From hand dyeing silk using natural dyes from foliage and flowers, to lightly pressing for a natural texture. You are buying a "living color" that may appear to change depending on the lighting. The kimono may have marbling and speckles from our natural dyeing process which embraces imperfection.
I ship orders within 1 business day from Monday through Friday. On holidays, I will ship the following business day. Select your preferred shipping service (STANDARD, PRIORITY, or EXPRESS) on the Shipping drop down menu at checkout.
Hand wash with a pH neutral organic soap to maintain the healing properties in the cloth. Natural dyed colors are effected by a change in pH. To wash, I recommend Dr. Bronner's Pure Castile Liquid Soap. Iron on medium-high setting.

Most calligraphers and wedding invitation designers use 1 yard to adorn each invitation.
My plant dyed colors may vary from batch to batch, for this reason I do not offer samples. Even if the color doesn't match precisely, they always look beautiful and add another layer of thoughtfulness to wedding invitations, programs, and bridal bouquets.
At the moment, I am not offering custom colors. I hand dye limited edition colors.

Following a wabi sabi lifestyle, every step is slowly crafted by hand in my studio: from hand dyeing silk using plant dyes from flowers, roots, foliage, nuts, fruits, and woods; sourced from fair trade companies or locally foraged, to tearing it organically into ribbons embracing imperfection, lightly pressing for a natural texture, and rolling onto handmade wooden spools.

You are buying a "living color" that may appear to change depending on the lighting. Each silk ribbon is one of a kind and may have nuances, marbling, speckles. Plant dyeing embraces imperfection and find beauty in its authenticity.
