This is an elegant Houmongi
kimono with serene fuji 'wisteria' and yanagi 'willow' pattern, which is dyed and embroidered with Soshu technique.
Detailed Kasumi'mist' pattern is dyed along the bottom and the sleeves.
Drawn work technique is added on part of the design, and its elaborate work is like a lace!
Textile is silk, and it has soft to the touch.
Sleeves and the bottom hem has basting stitches.
Its lining is slightly discolored due to the age. (sorry no photos)
Discoloration on outside is light and not disturbing.
Patinas on left front panel are not disturbing, but patinas on the back maybe noticed.
Please see photos for details.
Although it has some flaws as mentioned, it is still in wearable condition.
