Dear Marilyn. I took delivery of my parcel this morning. The Irotomesode is beautiful, the colour and decorative work continuing inside the garment is stunning. I thought it would be heavy like my previous purchase however this is light and much better for being so. I am delighted with my purchase, the quality of your goods is second to none and your customer service a delight. Long may you continue.

Hi Marilyn, I ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT! Honestly it's perfect. It arrived today as promised and I love the worn character of it. On top of that, it's larger than I thought it would be (which means it'll look even better hanging on the wall). Thank-you so much and yes, please keep me informed about new items. Warmest


Marilyn-just received the kimono-it is absolutely beautiful-fits my husband perfectly-couldn't have asked for better-thank-you so much! Regards

Marilyn, the kimono is wonderful. It arrived safe and sound and very well packed. Thanks for the prompt and attentive service.


Hello, I received the haori earlier today- it is beautiful and exactly what was pictured on the website- thanks for the prompt and friendly service.


I have volunteered to recommend Japanese Tex-Style to anyone looking at the website. I have dealt with Marilyn for many years. I have always found her service superb, her packing up and sending of goods first class in every respect. Her goods, whether fabric, kimono, haori, obi, bamboo, ceramics, vintage photos etc. are exactly as described on the website. In my opinion she gives extremely good value for money. Her prices are much lower than other U.K websites.

Hello Marilyn!
Thank you for the parcel. I'm very satisfied with your professional and fast service.

The products are stunning - I can't stop looking at the Maru Obi and my husband is very very pleased with his sword bag (by the way, it was my present for him).

Once more, thank you very much!!!
Have a nice day!



We received the Koi Nobori Package today. Thank yous o very much; they are beautiful! We can't wait to fly them on days that mark significance for our firstborn son--his first steps, birthday, Baptism anniversary, first day at school, etc. And of course on Boys Day 5/5 too!

I spent a decade in Japan and came home with lots of artifacts and textiles, but neglected to bring something home like this. I was so glad to find your company online and will recommend it to my many former expat colleagues who are also now living back stateside.

Thank you again!

Jenny Morrison

The cast were delighted with the Mikado costumes and we've had lovely comments via email from many members of the audience. Thank-you once again for all your help with this project. I really couldn't have done it without you.

Again, best wishes and thanks!

We just got back from our house and we put the obi on the table and it looks fabulous, my husband decided that it looked better folded like waves and it is wonderful. The dining room looks out to the Miles River so the view compliments the obi.

Thank you we really love it!
