This is an elegant Kurotomesode kimono by Seisei Matsui.
It is dyed with a dreamy matsu(pine tree) design.
'Kinkoma'(thick golden threads) embroidery work is partly added to the design, shining beautifully.
The textile is exquisite silk and has soft touch.
It comes with an attached layer of kimono(Hiyoku).
It has five dyed kamons(family crest).
There is a stamp of the designer's signature on the right front panel.

There are slight stains on the right shoulder and the back bodice near the back seams, but they won't be noticeable so much seen in the distance.(B)
There are some other faults such as slight wear on the collar, so please check the figures and photos for details.

If you do not mind these slight 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.
