JKA accepts payment by Paypal (only) and takes payment at the time your order is processed ready for dispatch.


JKA items are all old, vintage or antique, and may have been used or worn. Descriptions on the product page include an indication of size and condition and, where appropriate, whether textiles retain sufficient strength to be worn. JKA welcomes further inquiries to help clients make their purchase decisions.


Kimono sizes are given for the top of garment span between outer sleeve edges and length from centre back neck below collar seam to the hem. These are the key sizing considerations should you wish to wear your kimono. Whether an item can be worn may depend on the buyer’s experience with vintage garments as age spots, pinholes and inherent weave or dye characteristics can be present.

JKA has experience of kitsuke, and is always happy to assist or offer advice.


Colours may vary due to photography and the differences in browsers and devices. Please request more photographs of an item to help make your choice.
