This is a hitoe (not lined) asa chijimi kimono.
It is woven with strongly twisted ramie yarns, so it has special kind of crispy and textured touch of asa, which is very comfortable in humid Japanese summer.
Lapel is bachi-eri(folded lapel).
Charming flowers pattern is woven colorfully in this piece.
There are some prominent stains in the front part, but most of them will not be seen when it is worn, although the stain of right underarm part will be seen (A) .
It also has wear in the lapel and other flaws as photos show.
However, as a whole it is in very good condition and it must be wonderful summer kimono!
