Kimono Silk Trench Coats

I brought trench coats to the Baltimore Craft Show, sewn from [what else?] beautiful, vintage Japanese silks.
The one below, from a deconstructed and rearranged, very cool, old kimono.
A design of cranes and pine trees, cherry blossoms and feathers.
The back.
These are each one of a kind. There is enough for one coat per kimono.
Meisen! The beautiful, amazing, gorgeous, Japanese version of ikat.
In a black and white cracked ice design with bits of scattered color.
Meisen, So Cool!
And this cutie, another beautiful Meisen silk, in a twirling, scribble design.
All off to happy new homes!

    OMG the cranes one is off the charts beautiful. I have a feeling that if I’d seen this, and tried it in my size, I would have grabbed it!
