My last day in Tokyo has been a whirlwind, but a lot of fun. First stop was Nippori for a last fix of fabric shopping. It is such an overwhelming place and I could have so easily stocked up on endless pieces. I managed to contain myself and only bought a few. These will be featured on the blog soon!
I was very tempted to get this fab novelty fabric, but refrained. I'm not sure how it would translate to clutch bags…..
There are many beautiful modern cottons using designs inspired by old kimono fabrics.
These fabrics depict images of family crests which are often printed onto the back of a kimono at the neck or onto a hapi coat.
