This is a very special piece made of 100% satin silk of the highest grade. It has been designed to use it in different ways. You can wear it as a kimono or you can use it as a dress if using the belt, style it as you like it.  

It has been dyed with avocado pits that I regularly save from my kitchen waste. Around 50 avocado pits were used to dye this single kimono. The fabric has been then printed using the bundle-dyeing technique. I used ground cochineal, logwood chips, and different flowers like cosmos and marigolds. I sprayed some iron to obtain very dark spots, almost black stains. Avocado is used for its high tannin content. The well-known reaction between tannin and iron leads to color changes towards black. The final result is a very subtle, elegant print that you can enjoy forever in this satin silk kimono. 

The kimono has inside pockets and a belt with two hand-stitched loops.

Sewn with 100% organic cotton thread, GOTS certified. 

This kimono is size: L/XL.
