Frequently Asked Questions

What size are the kimonos?


All the kimonos and haori are vintage Japanese clothing items and don't come with labels, therefore it is difficult to give them an exact size. Generally, if you are wanting to tie the kimono shut across your front, we suggest they fit up to a womans UK size 14-16 or mens UK size medium-large. If you are happy to wear the kimono loose and open then they may fit slightly larger. All the kimonos do vary slightly in size so please check the individual measurements before purchasing.




Do you have any larger kimonos?


We occasionally manage to source larger kimonos (measuring approximately 70cm across the back) however they are not common. If you would like to be added to a waiting list to be contacted when a larger kimono comes into stock please email your details to iona@rekindledjoy.com. We will then contact you when a larger kimono comes into stock (on a first come first served basis).




What are the kimonos made from?


All of the kimonos are one-of-a-kind, vintage, Japanese kimonos and haori. The kimonos don’t come with labels so it is therefore difficult to say for certain what each of the kimonos are made from. Most of the kimonos we sell are made from silk, polyester, cotton or linen but other materials may be present.




Can I clean my kimono?


We do not recommend machine washing your kimono. It is difficult to say for certain what material each of the kimonos and haori are made from and therefore regular machine washing may damage your kimono. If you must wash your kimono please seek advice and take it to a proffesional dry cleaners.




Can you ship internationally?


We are able to ship most items internationally. If you are interested in buying something to be shipped outside of the UK please email iona@rekindledjoy.com for shipping costs.
