This is a gorgeous Houmongi by Itchiku Koubou, a factory that continues to create heritage of Itchiku Kubota's Tsujigahana design.
Its fantastical Bokashi 'ombre' design along the bottom with whimsical dye, shibori(tie-dye), and black sumi line tracing gives great impression.
On its base, fine Tsujigahana pattern and writing of 'Itchiku Tsujigahana' are woven elegantly with thin gold and silver foil threads and they twinkle by angle of light.
Textile is silk, and it has soft to the touch.

There is a stamp of Itchiku Koubou on right front panel.
Collar is hiro-eri (unfolded).

It has basting stitches, and it maybe after being cleaned.
Discoloration on the base is faint and barely noticeable or it perhaps appears to be a discoloration because the direction of pattern on each panel.
There are no noticeable flaws, and it is in very good condition overall.

We would like you to enjoy the fabulous and traditional design of Itchiku Tsujigahana Design!!
