Traditional Japanese kimono are made with bolts of fabric called tanmono, meaning simply ‘fabric roll’. Each tanmono is between 12-15 metres long, but only 36cm wide as kimono are made up of panels in that width. These fabric rolls are unique and it is rare to find two exactly the same, which is why vintage kimono silk is so well loved around the world. In our store we sell vintage kimono silk by the metre.
