|The Amuse Museum|
The very first piece I see at the top of the stairs in the exhibit is a large 3-D flowered piece. Lots of fun with its collage work and popping-out flowers.

|Bag made from an obi.|
|Silk ori-nui scarf.|
|Donza or night blanket padded kimono.|
The garments were mostly huge kimono called "donza" or "donja" which was used as a night blanket to cover one or more people in the family. The saying was, "Use a donza that can stand up when thrown." The donza are at least 6' tall or more and at least 5'-6' wide and packed with all kinds of materials, including crumpled paper.
There were also mended tabi, the fabric sock/shoes with a division between the big toe and the other toes; shirts, work kimono that came to just the knee, and more.
I will add to this post with many pictures. Stay tuned.
