"Crane and Tortoise" Kimono Tapestry

Bright cobalt blue fades to a sky blue as backdrop for two large, skillfully embroidered motifs - crane and tortoise. Amazing couching details!

A single crest in blue at the top. There were several blemishes on this piece, but it was too beautiful to take apart, so we covered the spotting by scattering blue peonies all about. Some very light blemishing still visible at the top (see photo) but we feel this is still an amazing display piece.

We created this tapestry by salvaging the back portion of a boy's miyamairi kimono. We keep the processing simple, retaining the original lining and stitching (usually hand done) and simply finishing off the upper edge to allow a display rod (up to 1.5" diameter) to be inserted across the top.

Click the option above to purchase one of our display rods (as shown in the photo) at a discount.
