Kimono Kitsuke Set-obi Makura, Ita, 3 Silk Koshi Himo, Korin Belt, 2 Eri Shin For Sale
Kimono Accessories Set w/free shipping anywhere!
Do you wear kimono? I've had lots of requests for a set of kimono
accessories and have found a great source for them here in Kyoto, so I
can offer them here all together, available for instant purchase at a
great price, and with free SAL airmail from Kyoto to your door,
anywhere in the world! Your package should arrive about 2-3 weeks from payment.
For this 8 piece set I've chosen high quality items that look and feel
nice and are sure to be used and appreciated every time you wear your
kimono. Everything's made with pride in Japan. Your set will include:
OBI ITA-the stiff belt inserted between the obi and kimono to keep both
from getting wrinkled. It has a handy strap with metal fasteners to tie
it with. It has the same all over mums design as the makura to make for a lovely, matched floral ensemble. The chrysanthemum(kiku) is the emperor's official seal and is known as an auspicious symbol in Japan, as well as being prized for its beauty. It's about 5.25" wide and just over 19.25" long.
OBI MAKURA-makura means pillow in Japanese, and this obi pillow is
inserted into the obi as you're tying it to help give it shape and form.
It comes with light gauze ties. A simple but incredibly useful
accessory. And as with the ita, these are beautiful as well as
functional, featuring a cascade of mums, on a fabric that feels
great to the touch. It's about 8" long.
KORIN BELT-elastic with plastic clips on both ends, it holds your kimono
in place when you're wearing it. 21.5" long, expands to about 40".
SILK KOSHI HIMO-koshi means waist in Japanese, and himo is string or belt.
Koshi himo is the first belt tied around your kimono to hold it in place
after you've gathered it at the waist to adjust the length to adjust
the length. The excess fabric falls over it. You'll get three of them.
It's a shame that they, like the rest of the set aren't visible when
worn, because these 100% silk himo are a pleasure to touch and behold,
tie dyed in the traditional way using the shibori technique, that
produces a wonderful puckered texture, as well as vibrant hues. A
generous 86" long, light yet strong. Yours may be a different combination of colors at the
tips than the assortment shown, the photo is for reference only.
ERI SHIN-The eri shin is the reinforcing strip that makes your kimono
collar stiff, giving them their distinctive look when worn. This set
includes two, made of a strong yet flexible material for years of use. I chose these over cheaper, thinner versions on the market.
This set is a great combination of quality, elegance and value, and is
made of strong yet lightweight materials that won't weigh your ensemble
down, while making it so much easier to put on and wear.
