This is a graceful vintage haori with 'botan' (peony) pattern, which is dyed glamorously with shibori(tie dyed) technique.
Its pattern expresses the delicate outline by using the pigment thinly.
Textile is soft rinzu silk with damask effect of checkerboard pattern pattern, and has soft smooth touch.
Sleeves and bodice are gracefully long, which is the feature of kimono from pre WWII.
Small but noticeable holes (B) are scattered around the shoulders.
On bottom of the left front, stitches are coming loose (E) and tears also can be seen on the corner shoulder (G). Please refer the photos and sheet for other flaws and details.
Although it has a feeling of used due to its old age, it is still in very good condition. Please enjoy its vintage atmosphere.
