This Kimono is HANDMADE from 100% recycled vintage Silk
Each piece is one of a kind and very unique. All Kimono's are made from upcycled sarees that are carefully selected and turned into a unique design. Sarees are the traditional wear of Indian women. Each Saree is turned into a new piece and is given a new life.
The kimono has a black silk belt, so you can wear it open or wrap it as a dress.
They are very lightweight and comfortable.
ONE SIZE - loose fit
Over knee length, oversized model
100% organza silk, treat with care > organza silk fabric is more stiff and gives more volume/body to this model.
Please note that as the pieces are fully recycled, they had a previous life so small imperfections can occur.
*To increase the longevity of your silk garments, we recommend handwashing them in cold water with gentle silk detergent

ALISON ENGELS is a range of unusual jewelry, objects & recycled kimono designs. Each piece is selected or made with an eye for traditional craftsmanship, outstanding beauty and tells its own unique story. From peculiar antiques Alison scavenged on her travels, to unique designs handmade in India and a small selection of new pieces by other designers and artists. “During my travels in India I keep on bumping into new ideas and projects. While working on the herbal mixes for ALS JE HAAR MAAR GOED ZIT & the handmade recycled paper packaging line, I also come across many local handmade natural products and crafts. As an artist and designer I can’t help myself to keep investigating and working with the amazing things I come across in India. I happened to bump into a collection of recycled sarees that was just meant for me to find. So I created new pieces out of these amazing silk fabrics. I met a family that crafts handmade silver jewelry, who turned all my designs into reality. And the journey continues.. The items on the webshop are all unique and handmade. They do not follow the fashion seasons, but come with a new breeze of air. New items will appear when the time is there. They are slow and produced one by one.
