This is a supreme Houmongi
made by Daihiko
, one of the most famous kimono makers.
There are many well-established makers, and the best in Kyoto is Chiso, and the best in Tokyo is Dihiko.
has graceful 'goshodoki' pattern, which is dyed with itome Yuzen
technique elaborately in the blue background.
It looks colorfully dyed, but with careful check, we came to know most colors are made by embroidery!
Only green and yellow colors are dyed partly, but it is incredible, but most parts are elaborately embroidered.
Please check detail photos.
It is the best of the best houmongi.
Textile is silk and has soft touch.
It is sewn as 'dounuki shitate'( lined only lower part ).
Silk 'hiyoku'(lower part of the additional lining) is added although it is detached.
Silk hitoe(not lined) juban is added.
Please enjoy its incredible peak of beauty of modern kimono with photos.
It has some flaws as photos and figure show, but they are slight or small and not disturbing. As a whole it is in very good condition, and can be worn formally.
Juban has prominent stains as photos show.
For the price, we are sorry but it is very expensive and we can not show the price here.
