Today, I need a little Zen.

There is something very soothing about beautiful fabrics, especially fabrics made from natural fibers. Textiles with a history and a little wear are also very appealing. I discovered these amazing fabrics from Sri. It is a gallery in Brooklyn that specializes in collecting antique fabrics from Japan.
I have always wanted a kimono like this. The shape is so amazing, wouldn't it be a wonderful wall display?
