This is a fabulous fukusa from Meiji period(1868-1912).
'mino' (cloak), 'kasa'( woven hat of rushes or bamboo) and bamboo with snow, which are embroidered elaborately.

It means 'Secchu-no-takenoko-gari', one of the folk tale of China. A boy wanted to give his sick parent, but season was winter(bamboo shoot grow in spring). However he couldn't give up, and went to look for it into snow covered bamboo grove. And he found!
It is a story, which let us know impossible thing can be happened if we strongly want.
Don't you think it is WONDERFUL story?

Textile is sleek shusu silk and the lining is chirimen(crepe) silk which has textured touch.

Other than frays (A) on embroidery and loosen stitches (C), it also has discolorations and stains.
Please check photos and a figure for details.

Please enjoy fabulous antique design!
