This is a graceful Irotomesode
kimono with graceful hand drum, flower and 'Shikishi'(square paper) design, which is dyed.
It also has vibrantly dyed 'Shou-chiku-bai'( pine tree, bamboo and ume blossom), oshidori (mandarin duck) and seasonal flower design.
Textile is exquisite silk and has soft touch.
The collar is hiro-eri (unfolded).
It has a dyed kamon(family crest) on the nape.
It has basting stitches and seems just been cleaned.
The design is partially peeling off on the back.
The discoloration on the lining is not disturbing for wearing.
For the details, please refer to the photos and the sheet.
*Though the photo shows uneven color dyes by the angle of light, actual background color is one color.
If these small flaws mentioned do not bother you, it still may be worn.
Please enjoy this graceful piece.
