All pieces are hand made one at a time in my Portland, Oregon studio. The fabrics used in this tunic are vintage Japanese silks. These very special fabrics were woven, and stenciled by Japanese artisans. Some were still in the bolt on their way to become kimonos. Others had been sewn into kimonos but were no longer wearable. I remove the hand stitching, wash and prepare the fabrics for their new life. Each piece I make is unique, most are one of a kind. I ship USPS priority at the beginning of the week.
