This one-of-a-kind vintage Kimono made its way from Japan via Brooklyn, and now to you.

It showcases Urushi lacquer dyeing techniques on 100% Silk.

 

Urushi is the sap of the Lacquer Tree, which contains a resin that is poisonous to the touch until it dries, and practiced only by dedicated artisans.
How the Urushi is treated reflects what kind of color will result; from where the sap's taken, the time, the weather and how skilled the workman is.
