Denver Colorado Cherry Blossom Festival July 01 2015, 0 Comments
We recently returned from the Cherry Blossom Festival in Denver, Colorado. It was fantastic! We made lots of new friends, ate yummy Japanese food and sold our beautiful kokeshi dolls, obis, pottery and other Japanese treasures to the wonderful people in Denver. Thank you so much for stopping by out booth!
We plan on returning again next year!
Kokeshi Designs is now offering Japanese Vintage Obi December 03 2014, 0 Comments
I am now offering one of a kind, Japanese Vintage Obi at reasonable prices. An Obi is traditionally worn by Japanese women over their kimono. Because the kimono has no fasteners of any kind, the Obi is the only thing that keeps the kimono closed and in place.
The fabrics and designs of obi are beautiful. I fell in love with them when I was living in Japan. For the website, I have chosen obi in colors and styles that I have found easiest to use in my own home. I use my many Obi for table runners and as display for Kokeshi dolls and other decorating items. I always display on obi on my entry way table and change is to match the season.
Remember, these are vintage, and if there are any flaws or stains I will do my best to mention it in the description of each obi. As with all my products, if you are not completely satisfied, you can return it for a full refund minus the shipping. I will be adding additional information in the coming weeks on how to tie an obi for display as well as information on the different types of Obi. They are beautiful and unique.
I love them and I know you will too!
