japanese butterflies

As there are over 125 million Japanese, it makes sense that there would be a lot of different cottons for their summer kimonos. Here are four more butterfly patterns—these ones from the contemporary Heisei era.

I expect these yukata bolts to arrive in Seattle in late October.

van gogh buttterflies and more!

The Japanese render butterflies in endless ways! The butterflies on indigo are simply irresistible.

This bolt is from a collection of eleven I just bought from Osaka that includes a lot of colorful and bold patterns.

These bolts are for making men’s yukatas. Expect them in early October, just in time for Fall in Seattle.
