This is a kurotomesode, most formal kimono for married women. Lovely 'hagoita'(battledore) and stylish 'kikko'(tortoise shell) pattern are dyed delicately and elaborate embroidery is partly added.
Please enjoy its wonderful dyed pattern on 'hagoita' with more photo.
This piece is very special because it was made by Daihiko ( Shinzo Noguchi), one of the most famous Tokyo Yuzen
( and Embroidery ) artisans.
Textile is soft chirimen(crepe) silk. It is soft and slightly textured touch.
Silk hiyoku is added and has a signature of the artist.
It has some flaws as the figure shows however they all are slight and not so disturbing.Black color is alive. Please check details with photos and the figure.
*We changed the lining because it is strongly discolored. So the lining and hiyoku are brand new and basting stitches are added.
*Approx background color - black
