  • Cotton Yukata and silk items are also printed at partner factories in Japan.
  • Approximate period to complete one order, after confirmation of payment, is about four weeks. Items which printing is done at other facilities, take about two months to complete. Items which do not need any sewing, such as Haneri or Obiage, are completed in two weeks. (Completion period does not include shipping time.)
  • ‘In stock’ items are shipped after confirmation of payment.
  • Our design and printing system are high quality, however, depending on display setting of each monitor, colors on photos may show differently compared to actual item. If you are concerned about color, you can request a color sample before you place your order. We can send one for free of charge by SAL.
