Metro Minute with kimono exhibition

Granville Island is famous for its farmers’ market and seafood restaurants, but it’s also home to a bustling artisan and arts community that welcomes visitors into its many shops and boutiques. Worth checking out is an innovative new craft and arts exhibit launching today, showcasing — of all things — luxury kimonos.

Artists Jessica de Haas and Jenefer Pleadwell say the designs showcase the clean, traditional lines of the kimono and offer variations of this style of garment in a more modern, wearable form. Warped, Wrapped, Textured runs until Oct. 17 at the Crafthouse at 1386 Cartwright St. For more information, visit www.craftcouncilbc.ca.
