This is a vintage summer Ro Irotomesode
Kimono with a design of large plant, which is dyed.
Also, an adorable butterfly design is embroidered.
Textile is Ro Chirimen(crepe) silk and has soft but textured touch.
Silk collar lining is attached, but there is no shoulder pad.
It is hand-sewn and the collar is hiro-eri(unfolded).
Sleeves are long, which is the feature of kimono from pre WWII.
It has 5 dye kamons.
Discoloration and a stain on collar lining are prominent.
Also, a couple of patinas on left front panel and a small hole on right sleeve can be seen.
However, outside is relatively in very good condition.
Please check detail photos.
It has several flaws, but we hope vintage fans enjoy wearing this charming piece!
