Kimono goodies!

Today the postman came at the door with his arms filled with packages! Yay! Three where for me, one with tabi


Sadly the tabi are too big, now I have to try and make them smaller. It's a good thing I did not buy more! One contained a painted soft orangey obi



I think it's really special. It's hard to find good condition vintage, painted obi, and this one is all that! I am very happy; she will look nice with quite a view kimono I think...
and the last but not least zori and a purse, those are soo cute adorable!


pink Zori


Purse

They are made with left over kimono fabric; the fabric is even in the boxes. The zori are in a cute golden box, the fabric is covered with sticky plastic this makes the zori durable and shiny, it's fun to see the left over fabric so I can analyze how they made them.
The purse is from the same fabric only not covered with sticky plastic so it's soft silk really wonderful! I am very happy to have won them, especially since the seller did not put them in one listing (strangely) not even on the same day! Well, I won them and I am happy!
Even the weather is gorgeous today! Happy day!

The obi is absolutely beautiful! I am curious to see what type of kimono you pair it with.
