That explains it... I found a twin of the furisode I bought in Japan (http://www.immortalgeisha.com/ig_bb/viewtopic.php?f=12&t=21320) on Shinei a month or so ago. Its disappointing when you find you've bought the more expensive twin... :cry:

I feel like this must be the most mass produced obi I have seen so far. Shinei seems to list them almost weekly. Here's one for this week:

I noticed recently that one of my vintage kimonos have at least one sister. =D There is a young lady who is wearing a black/red kimono in this topic in Songbird's post (since borrowing pictures is forbidden, I put just a link to here):

viewtopic.php?f=12&t=9920&hilit=kitsuke+blog

When I read that topic for some time ago, I wondered why there was something which looked so familiar and then, when I was spending some time with my collection during holidays I realized the reason. This one is mine (sorry for the little bit blur picture):

Image

Shame on me.. to not knowing my own collection so good than I should… :oops: :oops: :oops:

Also I happen to own a fukuro obi that has more than one twin. As being modern and synthetic, it isn’t so big surprise so I haven’t posted this earlier but since I’m this topic, I guess I mentioned it at the same.

This can be found from my collection:

Image

And this is from Shinei’s site:

(https://www.net-shinei.co.jp/com/item/d ... =&cnt_no=1)

Image

If I looked right, there was also one of these in Ryujapan’s (Shinei's) listings in eBay for some time ago. Most likely there are also more around.

The black twin of those dragon furisode was chopped in pieces and sold in eBay few months ago. I tried to win even one piece for making obi, but prices went astronomical every time. If you would be as lucky next time, for cutting one of those you would easily get 3 times the price the seller there asks :twitch: .

Image

And then more boring one; twin for my kiku komon.

I wish I could find twin kimono bolts. I want to make a kimono-style lolita outfit and just one bolt isn't enough.

I found my twin to my kimono in action on this blog, the photo is taken in 2012, so technically it could be mine, which after all, is a little unlikely :wink:

mine kimono is on page 5 in this thread.

Not identical but almost :) . Can't say I wasn't tempted to bid.



Finally found the identical twin for the first kimono! I was so sure I had seen it before, but it took several tries until I managed to dig it from my photo library.

Looks like my "oddy peacock" furi has "older sister" around. Tomesode version was listed to ebay recently.

My furi:

And tomesode version:

According to description this one was purple one as well in reality. Noticed this some days ago already but didn't had time take pictures from my furi for a while.

Someone who won the lottery recently buy this ro furisode, then we'll have three people on the forum who have a furisode like this :D (GoldenPhoenix and I have a twin of this furisode, although I paid only 56 dollars for it :D)
