The beauty of kimono (and obi)

This is the first in what I plan to be a series of posts showing photos of kimono and obi old and new. The come from various places on the web and have been used with the owners permission. No long disscussions on how these are being worn or what kind of kimono they are. Just lots of pictures to celebrate The Art of the Kimono. Pictures are linked back to the original source, click on them to see more. First - something old and something new (well acually the other way round, but you get the idea).

Jane these are lovely! What a wonderful surprise to see the note on my computer this morning and follow it to this delightful collection of photographs. I will take time away from Kusadama today to really look closely at them all, a lovely way to spend time during our freezing temperatures and dreary weather. Thank you so much.
