This is a chic gray Houmongi
kimono with a design of 'Housouge'(imaginary Chinese flower) pattern and flower arabesque on 'michinaga-dori'(wavy line), which is gorgeously embroidered.
It is a gorgeous piece with drawn work(one of the technique of removing thread partly to make a ground textile seen through) on its monotone simple design.
Textile is exquisite silk and has soft touch.
It has basting stitches and seems just been cleaned.
It has a rather large stain on the right back sleeve and relatively prominent.(A)
For the details, please refer to the photos and the sheet.
Although not shown on the photo and the sheet, 'hakkake' (lower part of lining) is slightly discolored.
However, if these flaws do not bother you, it could be worn on formal occasions.
Please enjoy its gorgeous and graceful design!
