clothing I've ever owned!"

Back from Japan!
Thank you for your patience and purchases during our trip to Japan. We're back now, and we were able to find some great kimono, haori, obi, and a few more uchikake. They should arrive over the next month, and we'll be posting them from then until the holiday season, I'm sure . . . check back here every now and then to see our most recent additions to the items for sale!
Kimono Source is your online source for Japanese kimono, obi, haori and other

kimonos and other garments as vintage clothing, decorations for home or
business interiors. Silk, linen, wool and other fibers were used to make these garments.
If you love kimono, obi, haori and other traditional Japanese clothing as much as we do, you're sure to love what we have to offer - a wide selection of kimono and other similar vintage Japanese garments at affordable prices.

Kimono Source also features a kimono books

kimonos include vintage and contemporary pieces handpicked from our Kansai

kimono by proceeding to the Kimono
index page, where you will find silk, linen, wool, and other kimonos.
beautiful obi sashes include Nagoya obi, maru obi, and others. The silk fabric, weaving, and embroidery used in these garments is often quite stunning. These long sashes
are best used as wall hangings, table runners, or other imaginative interior
decoration applications. Go to the obi

sashes one by one.

It's not at all difficult to look fashionably exotic while wearing one
of our haori. See which one you might fall in love with on the haori
index page. Call it a kimono jacket, coat, three-quarter length robe, or whatever you like, but by any name, haori are always suitable for wearing, display, or whatever purpose you may imagine.

Michiyuki, like haori, are very wearable, and complement many outfits
very nicely. Go to the michiyuki
index page for details and currently offered michiyuki. These are great overcoats for kimono or other delicate garments, since they are generally synthetic, water repellent, and easy to clean.
"I just had to let you know how incredibly pleased I am with the haori I received from your company today. It is absolutely beautiful. Even the packaging was beautiful. You have made my day. What a wonderful company you have. Congratulations."
