This is an elegant Houmongi Kimono with a 'michinaga-dori'(wavy line), hanamaru(flower-circle) and traditional pattern.

Gold foil and 'Kinkoma'(thick golden threads) embroidery work are added partlyto the design, which looks gorgeous.
The textile is exquisite silk and has soft touch.
There is a stamp of the designer's signature on the right front panel.

It has some rather prominent stains on the hem and the sleeves.(D)

It has patches of patina extensively as you can see in the figure. Especially those in the back of the right shoulder and the back bodice are a little noticeable.(F)
There are some other faults, so please check the figures and photos for details.

If you don't mind those flaws, it is still in good condition to wear.
We hope you enjoy this traditional design!
