Description
 

"Golden Paulownia" Wedding Kimono (Uchikake)

This is a vintage Japanese uchikake wedding kimono - an amazing collector's piece.

This uchikake features a cream and gold woven background with paulownia blossoms and mums floating along in a diagonal pattern. Great autumn palette.

Behind the florals is a large maze-like grid that is called a lightening pattern in vintage kimono design. This example is a very large, two-toned version with the gold providing a shimmering accent.

Heavily padded red hem.

There are several types of Japanese wedding kimono (uchikake, kakeshita, shiromuku), but the uchikake is the heaviest and most colorful. It is meant to be worn on top of the kakeshita wedding kimono, and is not meant to be tied with an obi. Rather, it is draped over the shoulders and worn mostly for picture taking. These make amazing displays.
