This is a Houmongi Kimono made by Seisei Matsui.
A woods pattern is woven on the blue-gray base.
The textile is exquisite silk and has soft touch.
There is a stamp of the designer's signature on the right front panel.

*The real base color is a little more greenish than in the photos.

Though not shown in the figures and photos, the tops of the shoulders and sleeves have
discoloration, which is not noticeable so much.
The discoloration in the lining is slight.
The wear on the collar and the smudges on the sleeve cuffs are rather prominent, but they won't be seen when it's on.

If you do not mind these faults, it still can be worn.
We hope you enjoy this elegant fashion!

*Seisei Matsui*
The present Seisei Matsui is a Kyo Yuzen dyer of the 3rd generation.
Although division of labor system is the mainstream in Kimono industry, Seisei's atelier does all works.
Real name of the 1st generation is Sintaro Matsui. He influenced many Yuzen dyer. His embroidery is minute and he is superior to fine gold glazing processing.
Real name of the 2nd generation is Syotaro.
The 3rd generation is Juntaro. His pieces have the modern atmosphere while he is succeeding to the tradition from the 1st generation.
It is the common characteristic of 3 generations that use motifs such as 'shou-chiku-bai' (auspicious three motifs - pine tree, bamboo and ume blossom) with gold glazing and dye with Shibori (tie-dye) technique on 'tataki-zome'(dyed it smashed) background.
These 3 generations studied under Japanese-style painters and those pieces are beautiful as picture.
