I Spy - Vintage Japanese Kimono's by La petite Madame

When my sister and I set out to begin Sisters Guild we knew the boutique would be filled with the most wonderful discoveries we could imagine. A boutique bursting with a collection of the curious, the wonderful,the beautiful, the sumptuous and a little of the quirky in between. We adventure to discover heirloom pieces for children and for home. 
Sisters Guild is the place to discover unique independent brands and occasionally when we are lucky enough to discover them, the rare and unusual vintage pieces too. These pieces have stories of their own but are only the beginning......they have yet more stories to be told.

A little while ago we stumbled across perhaps our favourite, most delightful and unique discovery this year so far.  We now have settled amongst our wonderful collections, vintage kimono's available in four different designs and in either silk or cotton. Each is an original made for children from their own mothers kimono's. Made with that maternal love they tell the story of the love, hopes and wishes a mother desires for her daughter.

"La Petite Madame was started when I found out that I was expecting a baby girl more than 3 years ago.
Travelling a lot in asia, I was always on the go to find littles treasures, sourcing and buying whatever I could.
I fell in love when I sourced some beautiful vintage japanese Kimonos for little girls right in central tokyo. I bought the entire stock from a rather bemused but happy grandma."

Thankfully we have our hands on this wonderful stock....well, perhaps two have already gone 'missing' as I had to get 2 for my own daughters.....but... hey...benefits of the job!

These make wonderful gifts, incredible dressing up clothes for the most envious of dressing up boxes and look beautiful framed.

We welcome you to take a look at the collection of four Kimono's we've brought to Sisters Guild for you to enjoy generation after generation.....just like grandma intended.
