This is a glamorous Houmongi
Kimono with a design of 'kiku'(chrysanthemum), 'ume'(Japanese plum) and 'tachibana'(mandarin orange) on bold diagonal lattice, which is dyed and embroidered.
'Shokkou'(octagon and rectangle) design on the background is woven and woven with cut velvet technique.
Textile is exquisite silk and has soft, but textured touch.
The collar is hiro-eri(unfolded).
Sleeve length is rather long.
It has a dye kamon.
This item seems to be old one.
However, basting stitches remain and it has been made over in recent years.
It has rather noticeable discoloration. (B)
There are rather prominent wear (A) and prominent dyestuffs.
Dyestuffs are more prominent on leaf part than 'peony' (botan) part. (These stains are just above the botan.)
All stains are small, but right cuff and left front panel are a little prominent.
There are other flaws such as discoloration of the lining.
Please check detail photos.
Also, it has peeling spots of gold glazes of flower outlines, although it is not indicated on the figure.
It has aged feeling overall, but we hope you enjoy wearing this piece on vintage Obis!
