The story behind this kimono is based on a hand-drawn and coloured "puzzle purse" love letter that was stumbled on over 200 years old. Made of paper, painstakingly decorated, and containing heartfelt declarations of love, it was carefully folded in to a pinwheel and had somehow managed to survive the last two centuries almost completely intact. Using all parts of the love letter,  a captivating and pretty patchwork pattern, then trimmed it with pieces of the original poetry reconstructed from the author’s charming handwritten script was carefully designs. It reads:

My heart is true to none but you
My heart I hope you will pursue
The roses and the lilies twine
Since you became my Valentine
Round is my ring and has no end
So is my love unto my friend

This starduster was trimmed with another piece of the original poem:

I’ve pictured here, your heart and mine.

There is something so special about wearing a piece of art that was created purely out of love :)
