This is a chic Houmongi
kimono with 'kikko' (tortoise shell) and 'Yukiwa' (snow crystals) on 'Michinaga-dori'(wavy line), 'Karabana' (imaginary flower in China) , pair birds, traditional charming flower motifs, which are embroidered.
With its similar colored and bronze foiled threads, beautiful ombre dyeing and drawn work(one of the technique of removing thread partly to make a ground textile seen through) are added gorgeously.
Textile is exquisite silk and has soft touch.
Beside the tiny stains, the lining is slightly discolored though not shown on the photo.
For the details, please refer to the photos and the sheet.
Though it has some flaws, it could be worn if these minor flaws do not bother you.
We would like you to enjoy this piece for your elegant kimono fashion.
*It has ombre dyeing on the left front and right back sleeve, and on the bottom.
The photo shows a little uneven colors, but actually the other has a plain color.
