Kimono Source Products


Our kimonos include vintage and contemporary pieces handpicked from our Kansai sources (Kyoto, Osaka and Kobe). Most of these traditional Japanese robes are in very good condition, and all are excellent examples of wearable art. Please take a look at the details of each kimono by proceeding to the Kimono index page, where you will find silk, linen, wool, and other kimonos.


Our 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 index page to examine these wonderful traditional Japanese kimono sashes one by one.


Haori, which are waist-length outer coats, are perhaps our most wearable products. 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 are three-quarter length coats that have square collars and necklines. 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.
