I've been combining vintage kimono, saree silk and batik cotton in my works. For early spring flowers such as cherry blossom or sakura, camellia, plum blossom, I used these textiles.
Next one that I made is a bit grander than the one above. This time I combined camellias and sakura using vintage kimono and saree silk. The fabrics you see below is vintage kimono (2 pieces) and lavender saree silk.

These hair combs will go wonderfully for bridal hair combs.
Some of the textiles I used in these works were obtained from some recycle shops here in Japan, and some from Etsy sellers. One of the sellers was KIMONOCARDS. The fabric samples were all beautiful and of very good quality! And Mona Soyak, the owner was very friendly. I was very happy with the purchase :)
