This is a Houmongi Kimono with flowers such as 'Kiku'(chrysanthemum) and 'kikyou'(balloon flower) design, which is dyed gorgeously on the 'tataki-zome'(dyed it smashed into the ground) background.
Main parts are embroidered and brilliant gold glazing add extra elegance to it.
Textile is exquisite silk and has soft touch.
There are a name and a stamp of the designer's signature, Seisei Matsui on the right front panel.

It has a stain on the right sleeve (A), but it is not disturbing so much, because it blends in with the base.
Discoloration of both sides are quite slight.
For the details, please refer to the photos and the sheet.

Although it has some flaws, they are not disturbing for wearing.
Please enjoy its graceful and adorable design!


*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.
