A few weeks ago the Big T and I discovered the Asia Gallery and Vintage Fabric Emporium.
Tucked away on an industrial estate, it’s a shop full of wonders. Kimono, obi and other fabrics of course, but also furniture, homewares and decorative items. It’s all used, and imported from Japan; and everything feels like a bargain. I bought this beautiful four metre long obi (kimono sash) for $20. It is perfect to deconstruct and re-fashion as a wall hanging.
… just as soon as I’ve made the boy-child a new duvet cover.
