Fringe Kimono - Silk Chiffon, The Goddess, The Bateleur

We've made fringe kimonos in almost every bold colour and print under the sun, but this season we wanted to create something a bit softer, a bit gentler. 

This kimono is made of 100% silk chiffon that was digitally printed with custom graphics which we created in-house.  

We created this graphic using an image of a block printed cotton tapestry, combined with two other images. On the front, we took part of an 18th century painting of a Bateleur, which is a breed of eagle most commonly found in Africa. The word "bateleur" is French for "street performer". The back features two goddesses found on the cover of a turn of the 20th century illustration made for the cover of a book called "Metamorfoze" by M. Louis Couperus, illustration by Jan Toorop.The original images are courtesy of the Rijksmuseum (Amsterdam) collection. 

The digitally printed 100% silk chiffon panels are combined with soft wool/spandex blend jersey, used for the sleeves and collar. The bottom edge is finished in cream lattice fringe, which we had custom made in Montreal.
