This is a gorgeous Kurotomesode kimono, the most formal kimono for married women, designed by Seisei Matsui, one of the most appreciated Yuzen dyer in Kyoto.
There are "Matsu"(pine tree), 'Ume'(Plum blossoms), court carriage, 'Hanabishi'(flower diamonds) 'Kikkou'(hexagon) pattern, which is dyed.
The fine 'kinkoma'(golden outlining embroidery work) and gold glazing works are applied on the pattern for adding extra gorgeousness to it.

Textile is exquisite soft silk.
It comes with an attached white silk layer of kimono(Hiyoku).
The collar is hiro-eri(unfolded collar).
It has five dyed kamon(family crest).
There are designer's signature and a seal on the right front panel.
It comes with a card board with his autograph.

Basting stitches remain, so it seems to be after cleaning.

There is a small stain on the lining which doesn't bother to wear it.
Although it's not mentioned on the sheet, there is slight discoloration on doura(lining of upper body) and
an attached white silk layer of kimono(Hiyoku).
There is no other prominent flaw.
For the details, please refer to the photos and sheet.

It is still in good condition.
Please enjoy wearing the gorgeous design at special events.

Description: mari

*Seisei Matsui*
The present Seisei Matsui is a Kyo Yuzen dyer of the 3rd generation.
Although division of labor system is the mainstream in Kimono industry, Seisei's atelier does all works.
Real name of the 1st generation is Sintaro Matsui. He influenced many Yuzen dyer. His embroidery is minute and he is superior to fine gold glazing processing.
Real name of the 2nd generation is Syotaro.
The 3rd generation is Juntaro. His pieces have the modern atmosphere while he is succeeding to the tradition from the 1st generation.
It is the common characteristic of 3 generations that use motifs such as 'shou-chiku-bai' (auspicious three motifs - pine tree, bamboo and ume blossom) with gold glazing and dye with Shibori (tie-dye) technique on 'tataki-zome'(dyed it smashed) background.
These 3 generations studied under Japanese-style painters and those pieces are beautiful as picture.
