kimono cards for Readings

I was knee deep in my stash of vintage kimono fabric today making a new group of cards for a Readings bookshop order and thought I'd take a few shots of their gorgeous colours before I stamp them with my hanko and pack them with their envelopes. I'm always amazed at the gentle beauty in the old style kimono fabric.

The kimono fabric comes from Kyoto and here are some of my favourites:

They'll be available along with a range of my hand printed woodblock cards in Readings, Carlton late next week. That's in Melbourne in case you were wondering.....


  1. I love these!

    Remind me of chyrogami washi paper.

  2. Love these cards - the kimono fabric is gorgeous isn't it...
