These kimonos can be worn by various sizes, all depends on your personal taste and how loose you like your garment.
Measure your chest curcumference at its largest measurement - if you like to wear your kimono open, choose a size which is maximum 15 cm smaller than your own circumference. If you want to add a closure (hook or ribbon), the kimono's circumference should either match or be larger than your chest circumference. If you want it to close fully around your hips, your hip circumference at its largest point must be smaller than the kimono's circumference.
Care: Let air after use. Dry clean is recommended. Can gently hand washed very gently in luke warm water. Take great care with the embroidery if you choose to hand wash this piece. Since it is silk, it might bleed colour when soaked.
100% repurposed vintage fabric, curated personally on location in India by our designer.
Curiousity: Shisha or abhla bharat embroidery is a type of embroidery which attaches small pieces of mirrors or reflective metal to fabric. Mirror work can be traced back to 13th century Persia and made its way to India during the Mughal era. The use of mirror and craft of mirror work stems from traditional Islamic beliefs that mirrors help to blind or trap the evil eye, reflecting bad luck and evil spirits away from the wearer. Mirror work as we see today in India originated in the 17th century when acenstors of the Jat community migrated from Balochistan and brought traditional Balochi techniques, such as cutting the mirrors in shapes to represent flower petals and leaves, with them.
