This is an elegant black like dark purple Houmongi
Kimono with lovely 'Botan'(peony) pattern, which is dyed.
The beautiful colored pattern glows very well on the tranquil color background.
Textile is exquisite soft silk with woven vertical stripe pattern.
The collar is hiro-eri(unfolded collar).
It was hand-sewn.
There is a designer's signatur on the right front panel.
It was made by Kimono Yamato, one of the most popular kimono merchants in Japan.
Basting stitches remain, so it seems to be after cleaning.
*The real color of it is a little bit more purplish than photos.
Although it's not mentioned on the sheet and photo,
there is slight discoloration on the lining.
There is no flaw on the outside.
Non of the flaws bother to wear.
Enjoy wearing the elegant yet lovely design.
