Eat Up The Color On Kimono China

Some colors and combinations can be gleefully slurped up and eaten with a spoon; the textures, stitching and little patches are the dessert to be savored after. That is how I feel about these kimono’s found on sri threads via Karin Style Blog. This is how my mind works Kimono color/textures/patterns = China! Plates of patterns and colors, bread plate, saucer, teacup, all in these delicious colors! I wish I were a ceramist! Or at least had enough time/money to develop these idea that take a dive in my brain and swim around. Sheets from this inspiration, all different textures, colors, oh, it gives me a chill! And this would make up all the colors of my bedroom! It was just a year ago I was writing about the same thing, know your kimono - driven by the divineness of Sashiko! Asian Art by Kyoko has the most wonderful Indigo Japanese Patched Jacket.

Kim, you MUST visit Japan. There's this type of visual stimuli everywhere...even wandering the 100 Yen Shop! People ask why I continue to return to Japan when I could travel to other destinations, but I'll never get enough of it.
Lovely post.

Great links in this post! I love the colors and prints in that kimono and if I came across a set of dishes that looked like that I would be compulsed to buy them.
