selvedge sleeveless kimono using full width of the silk as the height of the kimono, creating little to no waste of this precious material. no side or shoulder seams for extra fluent silky drape. low placed loop hole on the back for experimental belt play. armholes are dropped below the waist so belts can grasp either front or back or both parts of the kimono to create fluidity or pleats as desired. silk is used inside out to keep the smoothness on the skin and the softer sheen exposed. oversized shapes means you will probably never outgrow them so they get to stay for as long as you like.

this washed silk was selected for its natural isolation and luxurious aspect. it ages beautifully, making this garment a wardrobe icon. silk is known for its low impact, especially when produced as local as france. we choose to work with tissages Perrin (1929°) because they are a family run business turning french savoir faire into luxury goods to wear on our skin. we love Perrin for always surprising us with these gamechanging developments and keeping their products made in france. a local production means easy control and thus transparency and low transportation impact during development and production.
this silk can be machine washed on ‘delicate cycle’ and no temperature, using special silk washing soap. lay flat to dry and remove most wrinkles by flattening them with your hand. plan your wardrobe and consider repairing, swapping or upcycling your items when no longer in use.
