"Purple Clouds" Furisode Kimono

Dramatic design with high contrast royal purple clouds floating across a cream colored background.

We believe the fractured abstract pastel elements are meant to be pine boughs, though they could be florals.

Gold stenciled imagery is offset against the clouds, and the silk base has a basketweave jacquard.

Look closely at the photos and you'll see that the clouds were created with the shibori technique, and other elements were brush painted, as well as the stenciled gold.

This is a traditional furisode kimono created for a young, unmarried woman. Note the long sleeves (furi = long, sode = sleeves) sometimes called "butterfly sleeves", which flow with grace when she gestures, attracting male attention!
