This is an elegant Houmongi kimono with Tsujigahana (one of the Japanese fabric dying techniques called a phantasmal technique) design, which is dyed.
This Kimono was made by Tetsuya Higuma.
The light colored ombre dying on the cream colored base gives an elegant impression.
The base is woven with unique weaving style and has bumpy texture.
Textile is exquisite silk and has soft touch.
There is a dyer's signature on the right front panel.

The stains on the sleeve are quite prominent and noticeable.(J)
The other stains and patinas are slight and they are not so noticeable from a distance.(E,C,H,I)
The dyestuff is tiny and close to the hem, so it is not so noticeable from a distance.(D)
The snag on the sleeve is blended in the base color, but it is sticking out and it is noticeable.(F)
The smudges on the collar and the cuffs, and the discoloration on the lining are slight.(A,B,J)
For the details, please refer to the photos and figure.

If these discoloration do not bother you, it could be still worn for formal occasion.
Please enjoy this elegant fashion!
