Antique Kimonos

I have been collecting inspiration on Kimono art for a few years now, so thought I would share some of my favorites. If you haven’t noticed already, Japanese motifs are suddenly showing up everywhere. I think that they are so classic that they trancend “trends” though, which is why I am planning on turning my home office walls into a “Kimono Collage”.


Some of the best color inspiration and design combinations I’ve found are though a website that sells antique textiles Some of my favorite pieces are shown above. There is so much beautiful imagery (Japanese, Chinese, Indonesian, African, Ottoman, Indian, etc) on this site you may get lost for awhile. Even better, if you have a budget it is all for sale.

    I visited Japan many years ago and have always had an afinity for their designs. We purchased several Kimono sleeves which I had framed. And a lovely wedding Kimino, which I had hung in my stairwell.
