Minako’s Kimono Story (Part 2)



My mother used to wear this Oshima tsumugi on New Year’s days when she was young. Now she is learning to play the koto and wears gorgeous kimono on the stage, but she does not wear kimono in her private life, so this Oshima tsumugi had been neglected for a long time. I asked to have this kimono taken apart and re-sewn to my size. I like the particular crispy but smooth touch of Oshima. This is my first tsumugi. The black color was not as strong as I imagined. Also, I like quiet but strong color combinations.
