This is a vintage Bashofu Kimono with cross Kasuri
pattern, which is woven.
Textile is rather stiff distinctive Bashofu.
The collar is Hiro-eri(unfolded) and cotton collar lining is attached.
Shoulder pads and 'Ishikiate'(square piece of reinforcement cloth) are not attached.
Bashofu is known as the top quality summer kimono in Japan, and the oldest fabric in Okinawa.
Nearly 200 trees are cut down to weave one standard length of cloth for kimono.
It requires 6 months to finish weaving.
Although not shown on the photo and figure, lots of pinholes can be seen on the left front panel and right okumi(front panel below collar end).
It is discolored overall, and has brownish stains and patinas in places.
Please check detail photos.
However, because the length is rather short, it maybe difficult to wear.
We would like you to enjoy its distinctive Bashofu feeling!
