The Lina kimono has a belt in the waist, asymmetric cutlines and is made of mixed sari pieces with beautiful print combinations. It can be worn both open and wrapped as a kimono dress. We love to use the kimono on top of a simple top or a dress. The kimono is also perfect on the beach, but it fits well all year around.
All SISSEL EDELBO styles are being upcycled of vintage sari and in that way sustainable. In the past, these saris has been worn by the Indian women, which means that smaller imperfections such as small stains and loose threads can occur. However, to us these imperfections are the clothes' unique beauty flaws. They reflect the life and the love that the previous owner has added to the fabric. We hope you will love the story of the material as much as we do - FROM ONE WOMAN TO ANOTHER.

This style is a part of our Zero Waste concept. It Is made of excess vintage sari-fabric, either from other styles or from discarded saris that cannot be used for a complete style. Instead, parts from these saris can be used for smaller styles or smaller parts on a mix-style, for example sleeves. We are actively working on our Zero Waste principles in order to minimize waste from our production and make our supply chain as sustainable as possible.
All SISSEL EDELBO styles are made of the best reused saris which have been worn by Indian women for decades before they were carefully selected by team SISSEL EDELBO and then re-designed. The small imperfections that can occur tells a story about the fabric’s authentic life from the past. In SISSEL EDELBO it is the beauty of the imperfectly perfect we love and cherish. We hope that you will continue the beautiful story with pride. - THE STORY CONTINUES.
