Silk Kimono

Above the finished kimono, we all had fun modelling it.

 This kimono was made by the Surrey branch of the Guild of Silk Painters for the Guild of Silk Painters festival a few years ago. The background silk was painted on a large piece of silk then made up into a kimono and obi. The fish were painted on silk by each member of the group and appliqued to the kimono.

Details from the obi
