This is a Miyako Jofu Kimono with geometric circle pattern, which is woven with double ikat technique.
It is hand plied in Miyako island, and called Miyako Jofu. The characteristic glossy look, almost black "Ai" indigo blue, make it very beautiful.
Textile is thin sleek asa (ramie) with surprisingly light and refreshing touch.

The collar is bachi-eri(folded collar).
It was hand-sewn.
It has no 'Ishikiate'(square piece of reinforcement cloth) nor shoulder pads.

There are small stains on the left front panel which are not that noticeable.(C)
There are large stains on the back bodice.
They are larger and more obvious than photo(A).
For the details, please refer to the photos and figure.

If you don't mind those flaws, it is still in wearable to wear. Enjoy wearing the refreshing and rustic texture.

*In Japanese, 'asa' includes below three kinds of material. You must feel it strange that 'linen' is included.
'Taima' = Hemp
'Karamushi','Choma' = Ramie
'Ama' = Linen

*Approx background color - dark navy near black
