In case the audio portion of the video isn’t available to you (we’ve had some trouble) here’s what you should know from watching the video:
This particular piece has some fabric sitting throughout where the fibres have spread apart due to wear. There is also a very faint lighter spot on the back as seen in the video
Wabi-sabi pieces have flaws that we have tried to highlight in the images. We feel these pieces are still beautiful to wear and in most cases, you are the only one who will know that the piece has "flaws". Feel free to contact us for additional pictures or if you have any questions.
Wabi-sabi pieces are final sale.
The Kimono-Sleeved Duster is an ethereal, long, open-front duster with a detached belt that lets you cinch the waist if you want to! Wear it over jeans, a dress or a bathing suit. Wear it frontwards or backwards, as a dress or as a jacket--it's a super-versatile piece of slow fashion. Sleeves end at about the elbow.
Sheer Kimono-Sleeved Dusters work well as a cropped wrap jacket that ties in the front. Brand tags are cleverly hidden so that you can wear the duster forwards or backwards.
This particular style works best on women who are at least 5’4” tall, but feel free to tie little knots into the hem to make the overall length shorter.
Generally, this one size fits from a size 2 to a size 3X but here are the actual product measurements. (There are slight variations due to the handmade nature of this garment.)
LENGTH FROM BACK OF NECK TO HEM: 45"-51"
WIDTH ACROSS BACK UNDER ARMS: 30" Laid Flat
SLEEVE OPENING AT BOTTOM OF SLEEVE: 15" Laid Flat
SLEEVE OPENING AT UNDERARM: 15" Laid Flat
LENGTH OF BELT: 63"
Our sheer garments are made with pure silk georgette or pure silk chiffon saris. The remainder of our silk items are made with a strong pure silk crepe.
Wash clothing separately in cold water by hand or in a net bag on delicate using mild detergent. Hang dry. Steam iron if desired.
CARING FOR PATCHED SILK:
If a patch seems to be lifting at the edges, it can easily be re-attached.
- Place a piece of white cotton fabric on the ironing board (in case the glue from the patch seeps through the fabric onto your ironing board.).
- Place the silk fabric with the area to be patched in a single layer on the white cotton.
- Place the patch over the fabric flaw on the silk fabric.
- Cover the silk fabric and the patch with a presscloth - a thin layer of cotton fabric.
- Press the patch on firmly through the presscloth with the iron temperature set to high. Repeat as necessary.
- Allow the patch to cool before moving the silk fabric off the ironing board.

All Norris motors clothing is made from up-cycled vintage silk saris. The saris are washed, ironed and steamed to clean and revitalize the fabric before they are turned into new garments.
Using vintage saris ensures that our pieces are one-of-a-kind and adhere to a sustainable lifestyle, but it also means that there may be some imperfections. We have examined each garment closely and have mended or patched as necessary.
We are happy to patch or refund any piece that you discover has imperfections that you had not anticipated.
Thank you for supporting our mission to dress people in ethical, eco-friendly and luxurious fashion.
