I believe in an aristocracy of the sensitive, the considerate and the plucky. Its members are to be found in all nations and classes, and all through the ages, and there is a secret understanding when they meet. They represent the true human tradition, the one permanent victory over cruelty and chaos.
~ E. M. Forster
Art - John William Waterhouse

Gather Ye Rosebuds While Ye May by Waterhouse, 1909 (inspired by a line from a 17thC poem by Robert Herrick)
Quote from Forster’s essay ‘What I Believe’, first published in The Nation, 1938

Modern Kimono: “Around 1950’s and 1960’s, spitz-a kind of dog, was very popular as a pet. They have white fluffy hair and curly tail-kawaii look but they yelps so much, so I think they were considered to be good for guard dog. We could see spitz in neighborhood.

This obi was made from juban (underkimono) from aroud that age.

Iuchi Shoten, kimono company who makes charming casual kimono made this obi from the vintage juban we had.

Kyo-fukuro obi 20.000 yen
Hanhaba obi (narrow obi) 12.000 yen”

I want this obi!!!!
