In search of Chinese-inspired women's clothing? A new business has you covered. Located at 729 Grant Ave. in Chinatown, the fresh addition is called KIM + ONO.
According to the business' website, Kim + Ono is a family-owned company with a long history in the industry that specializes in hand-crafted silk and charmeuse kimonos featuring botanical prints.
For 30 years, the company operated a small Chinatown boutique called Old Shanghai, but it recently rebranded. All kimono patterns are originals that are sketched by hand before they're "saturated in rich watercolors using a traditional paintbrush," the website states.
Yelper Becky Q. is the only person to review the store so far, but she gave it five stars.
"Watch out! There are some new kids on the block! Nestled in the heart of the tourist side of Chinatown, the store is filled with racks and racks of tasteful kimonos in all sizes and colors," she wrote. "It's a great place to incorporate quality kimonos into your weekend attire, or to find gifts for your bridesmaids."
KIM + ONO is open from 10 a.m.–6:30 p.m. on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Sunday, and 10 a.m.–8 p.m. on Friday and Saturday.
