This beautiful cocoon is made from a precious vintage kimono fabric with floral elements on a violet background. The cocoon is lined with the lining of the original kimono, a particularly beautiful cream-white silk that shows the typical colour gradient – here into orange – that kimono linings often have at the side edges.
This cocoon is made partially or entirely of vintage materials. For our vintage line we use original silk kimono fabrics, but also a series of further upcycling materials. Such creations are always labelled with the term “vintage”. Vintage materials correspond with the current outlook of our times, with an increased demand for sustainability. They testify to a beauty that lasts through the ages: its value does not fade away in the eye of the beholder. These fabrics were either originally sewn into a beautiful piece of clothing, or they found their way to us from the reserve stocks of talented seamstresses. Of course these fabrics have been cleaned, but due to their historical nature they can show signs of wear and tear.
Please note that the colours of our products may look slightly different on your monitor than the way they actually appear in natural light!
