From office to off-duty to glam nights or sultry summer nights, stand out in the crowd with this chic versatile kimono created from the original artwork by First Nations Artist, David Mungo Knox, whose stunning wood carvings and prints can be found in galleries around the world.


'Friends Of The Sea' Kimono is designed from David's original print of a Sea Eagle carrying on his back an awkward looking sculping along with a fiercely cute wolf eel. A reminder of the importance of coming together to help one another.


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's soft fabric hangs over the shoulders falling into an elegant drape down the first. The Robe Kimono  Knit bamboo fabric trim and a matching 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.

Customize your kimono by choosing to have yours made from delicate chiffon with a sheer look, or silky knit which is slightly heavier and has a bit of stretch for added comfort. See below for fabric details and sizing.
