This is a graceful Tsumugi Houmongi
kimomo with a design of bamboo fence, 'Kiku'(chrysanthemum), 'Kaede'(maple leaf) and 'Ume'(Plum blossoms), which is dyed on the light green background.
Textile is exquisite Tsumugi
silk and has soft and nubby touch with rusty atmosphere.
There is a stamp of the designer's signature on the right front panel.
Slight discoloration can be seen on both sides.
It has slight and tiny stains around the collar. (A)
Although not shown on the figure and the photo, smudges remain on the shoulder tops and around the sleeve tops.
It seems to be the one which was made at the time of the fitting before the sewing.
If these flaws do not bother you, it could be worn on formal occasions.
Please enjoy this enchanting graceful piece!
