This is a hitoe (not lined) vintage kimono with a tranquil design - maple leaves and stream are dyed on the bottom, and woven goldfishes are swimming in the blue.
The sleeves are gracefully long, which is the feature of the kimonos from pre WWII.
Lapel is bachi-eri(folded lapel).
Textile is silk, and it's soft.
As the photos and the sheet show, it has some flaws.
The discoloration on the back is rather prominent.
Stains like the one in the photo G can be seen here and there.
However, as a whole, it's still in very good condition and a wonderful piece for its excellent vintage design.
