100-year-old dresses upcycled by using the aizome-method
I want to recommend this to those that want something different! These dresses were made almost 100 years ago in France! These dresses are dyed using the aozome-method in Kojima in Okayama prefecture, and thus upcycled into something modern and trendy. They were made 100 years ago so they are very durable and well made. Please take a look!
How to buy
The products of mumokuteki also make for great presents! They wrap the presents up like in this picture for free. The logo and the silver ribbon are very cute! I’m sure if you get a cute gift from Kyoto-like this the person you give it to will be very happy.
