Crossing and fold up your sleeves by a long sash, we can easily move and work when you dress Kimono.
My Tasukihimo sash is always shrinks but I could make it really beautifully this day, and shoot it.
This reminds me Japanese Jidaigeki film, "Kenkakushoubai", a young wife of the old great AkiyamaKohei Sensei.

Also, I added a new scrunchy.
This kimono fabric is called Rinzu (綸子）. Pattern woven fabric.
We can see Rinzu fabric today but old Rinzu has much more variety of patterns.
I think the most popular woven pattern for Rinzu is Saya-gata. And old ones , for example, landscapes, flowers, crowds, and many more patterns or sometimes mixed of those all patterns in one bolt. It is really fun to see them.
Not only gorgeous patterns woven, many old Rinzu fabric has drawings or dye-works on it (not only solid coloured).
You can enjoy those Japanese gorgeous crafts in such a tiny fabric of scrunchies!
Why don't you visit my shop and try it?
I am accepting a custom order too.
Let me know if you have any questions ;-)

My new scrunchie.
The dark green fabric is layered fabric, which is two pieces of thin indian cotton layered. A kind of batik I think. A starfish or star shells dyed on the fabric, stitched around the starfish by natural color thick thread.
I coordinate gently green with it.
This scrunhie reminds me a memories of summer beach with my little brother and my parents. As I lived a town near to Tokyo, "sea" and "beach" was always very special place for me.
I expected post this new scrunchy in early summer, though , I hassled other "trinket " households and I list this item now.It is a kind of memoir of this summer. Hope you will find your own beautiful summer memories in this scrunchy. (Or, I hope this scrunchie will tie your bunch of summer photgraphs :-)
Visit my shop and see more lovely Kimono scrunchies!!

I took a shot of one of ordinary summer days. I do not know how mommies in the world play with their children everyday. And I know its depends on each families of course.
In my case, I do not have drivers licence, nor even a bicycle(!!), so I always take my daughter to neighbor small squares by walk.
One of our favourite square has a small stream. Although it would be dried up while winter, but we love to walk on the stony isle.
Taking off Geta, down in the stream. Lovely noon.
