This is a vintage kimono with wonderful design - heron and 'jakago' (gabion) pattern is woven with Urushi
coated threads, and 'kikko'(tortoise shell) with various flowers motifs are dyed colorfully.
Its design has full of fantastic old fashioned taste.
Textile is silk and has soft touch.
Its lapel is bachi-eri(folded lapel).
The sleeves are gracefully long, which is the feature of kimonos from pre WWII.
Because of its old age, there are prominent patinas in the white parts, and the purple background has slight discoloration.
It has some other flaws as photos and figure show, but as a whole it is in very good condition.
