Origami Kimono’s

Designer: Piet Design

Between 1893 and 1896 George Hendrik Breitner made a series of paintings of girls in Japanese kimonos in his studio in Amsterdam. This series is one of his best-known work and is loved by a large audience.
A striking feature of these paintings is the bright use of color in the representation of the silk fabrics. The strong contrasts and the graphic surface structure give the images a timeless appearance.
The model he usually used for these works was Geesje Kwak, a petite 17-year-old girl who originally came from Zaandam.
Geesje did not wear the kimonos and obis (belts) according to the official Japanese dress code. At that time, people in Europe did not know enough about Japanese customs.

Make 10 girls in kimono with this set.
