This is a tasteful deep color antique cotton kimono for men.
There are 5 dyed kamons.
This item might have been woven early Meiji period (1868-1912) or earlier, and it might have been keeping in a warehouse for a long time.
The outer material is cotton, but it's not so thick and it's soft and warm.
Hand-spun yarns seem to be used on the outer material and the fabric of hakkake (lower part of lining).
Exquisite silk is used on the lining of the bodice.
Lapel is bachi-eri (folded lapel).
Its natural ai
color is exceptionally beautiful.
It has prominent flaws such as tears, a repaired tear and discolorations.
Please see more photos and a figure for other flaws.
Enjoy this piece as a handicraft material!
