Ceremonial Kimonos Available to Students
A photo studio and Kimono rental company in Kyoto (Creare Bridal Studio) contacted us about used rental bridal kimono (Shiromuku) that they have available for sale, thinking students might like to use them for painting supports or other artistic purposes:
"We have a few dozen used Shiromuku and we are wondering if there are any ways to reuse them. Then we came up with rather crazy idea of using them as canvas. Shiromuku is white kimono usually worn by a bride on a wedding day. Shiro means white and Muku means pureness. To be honest, I don't know what it will mean to paint on a white and sacred kimono. I thought art students would have great approach (or more interesting idea) to make arts out of it.
You can find more information about Shiromuku: http://fyoshie060861.blogspot.jp/2008/03/japanese-traditional-wedding-style.html
If you are interested, please let me know.
We are thinking $25-$30/piece + shipping fee.
Price is negotiable for bulk buy."
