This is a charming vintage Irotomesode
Kimono with mizuaoi(pickerelweed) and leaves pattern, which is dyed on the vibrant purple colored background.
Shibori(tie-dye) technique is used on the pattern as well.
Textile is glossy silk with damask effect(rinzu) of woven Paulownia pattern, and has soft and comfortable touch.
Lapel is bachi-eri(folded lapel).
Sleeves are gracefully long, which is the feature of the kimono from pre WWII.
It has an embroidered kamon(family emblems) on the nape.
Tiny slight brownish patinas(B) can be seen on the white patterned area of the left front.
There are some reddish discoloration and stains, especially stains on the chest area are prominent(A,D).
It also has reddish smudges(C) on the sleeve seams.
There are some other flaws such as seams on the lining.
For the details, please refer to the photos and the sheet.
It's still wearable enough with very good condition if you don't mind those stains on the chest area.
Please enjoy this lovely design full of Japanese vintage atmosphere as you like.
