Handmade by Valerie Timmis these unique items from the silk of vintage kimonos combine Japanese aesthetic and luscious quality silks with fine, innovative decoration. Traditional Japanese designs and colours have a rich history. They were highly fashionable at the turn of the last century and remain contemporary today. To these sumptuous beauties: vintage fringing, such as Victorian jet, Edwardian glass beading or dyed silk from the 1920’s, have been added to complete each unique and wearable item. Wall pieces have silk cords and bespoke hand-crafted frames in wood or metal.
