This is a chic colored hitoe (not lined) vintage summer kimono with mallet wheel, nadeshiko (pink) and fuji (wisteria) pattern, which is dyed with shibori (tie-dye) technique.
Several parts are embroidered in the both fronts and the back side, and they show elegant atmosphere.
Textile is exquisite silk.
The lapel is bachi-eri (folded lapel) and the sleeves are long, which is the feature of kimono from pre WWII.
Discolorations can be seen on creases like shoulder parts and the back side.
It has rather deep colored stain in the left sleeve part of front side, and there are stains in the white shibori parts.
Please see more photos for other flaws such as snags.
It must be a marvelous piece to enjoy its vintage taste!
