From office to off-duty stand out in the crowd with this versatile kimono. This kimono is created by using the original artwork by Kwakiutl' Artist, David Mungo Knox, whose wood carvings can be found in galleries around the world. Eye Of The Bird Kimono is designed from David's original hand carved Thunder Bird mask. In Kwakiutl' culture the great Thunder Bird lives high in the sky, known to cause crashing booms of thunder when he flaps his wings and shoots lightning from his eyes. 

 

Each kimono is designed in Vancouver, B.C. by Marie Lavallee of Cree and Metis Nation, highlighting David's traditional elements and shapes of Kwakiutl art.

 

Kimonos are available in two styles: Draped kimono hangs elegantly over the shoulders and the Robe Kimono with Knit bamboo fabric trim and amatching chiffon belt. Both are stunning and perfect for any lazy or dress up day! 

 

As always, SEWCIALIZE is driven to create meaningful products that inspire conversation and versatile wear.
