This is a desirable asa kimono (Miyako Jofu) for summer use.
Simple clouds of tiny crosses are finely woven with double ikat technique.
Textile is very thin and delicate ramie, which is elaborately hand plied and hand woven.
With the basting stitches remaining, it seems unworn, though very slight discoloration can be seen on the collar liner.
As a whole, it's really in very good condition and could be your precious summer attire.
*Approx background color - dark navy
Softness ( Exceptionally Soft, □Soft, Medium, Comparatively Stiff, Stiff )
*In Japanese, 'asa' includes below three kinds of material. You must feel it strange that 'linen' is included.
