Each of our kimonos tells a story about how it changed, from Kenya to Barcelona and now to you, where it will become part of the story you create. Wear this one-of-a-kind Kimono in the Bamburi motif over jeans for a unique, casual look or dress it up with heels and hoops for a chic yet distinct look.
