Reclaimed Kimono Shoelaces

Kimono Kicks

Bring a hint of traditional Japanese fashion to your modern-day wardrobe with shoelaces handmade from vintage kimono fabric. Each print is unique and features a beautiful ornamental design characteristic to kimono fabric.

Designed by Joe Wayno, who while living in Japan was inspired by how Japanese youth mix and match traditional kimono material with their fashion. It turns out that there is a surplus of kimono fabric in Japan. After WWII, kimono wearers became a minority in Japan, but the fabric was still produced. Joe purchased excess bolts of overstocked kimono fabric from the 70s and 80s and has been designing his own line of traditional-meets-modern accessories ever since. Handmade in Japan.

    Comments about Reclaimed Kimono Shoelaces:

    The 4 pairs excited the artist in me! Vibrant & each unique in colors, they're beautiful. Long in length, one pair used on hiking boots and are great. A red pair laced up my white hemp 'green' tennis shoes and look fantastic, bring in looks & compliments. Laces are wide, strong and do stay tied because of being raw silk. Ten stars!!!

      Use laces on Doc Martin boots & they were plenty long. I double knot the tie on my tennis shoes & had some excess lace. The four (4) pairs of laces are vibrantly beautiful & each pair of laces unique in design & color arrangements. [...]

        What can you really say about a pair of shoelaces? I like them, they are colorful, feel good to the touch, keep my shoes tied and look good. So far I have no complaints at all. I plan to buy some for gifts.

          I used them in a fun pair of shoes. They come undone easier than a regular pair of shoelaces, but double knotting helps.

            I love these shoelaces! If they came in more colors, I would buy more. They add pizaaz to my
            Simple sneakers in silk. They turn a basic shoe into something special. They are vibrant, but tasteful. They lace easily and are functional.
            Everything you could want in a shoelace--and recycled or repurposed, too.

              These are really great, both to look at and to tie one's shoes with! Not quite sure if they are ecological to manufacture, but the recycling of any kind of clothing sure does appeal.

                These were purchased for my 11 year old daughter who is a stealth ninja!!! We purchased the black ones to go with her Vans high top desconstructs...and the endless stream of nerdy graphic tees and dickies shorts. They rock and were worth every penny!
