- Tears, rips, holes, minor stains, etc. due to prior lives as kimonos or haoris aren't considered manufacturer defects. (We endeavor to ensure this type of damage is kept to a minimum on all products.)
- Tears, rips, holes, misprints, bleeding, etc. from original, traditional manufacturing and dying/inking processes of vintage silk aren't considered manufacturer defects. (Traditional processes always have these types of things, which more so shows how genuine the articles are than a statement of quality.)
- Patterns will oftentimes vary from the pictures in the item listing due to being from a roll of fabric or having to use different pieces to avoid damaged portions of the original kimono. Item pictures are descriptions of the types of fabric used instead of the exact patterns that will be on the final pieces ordered, unless if the item is directly stated to be "one-of-a-kind."
