"Sister of the Bride" Tomesode Kimono

Subtle, nearly-antique kimono with a collage of florals on the front two panels. Note the long sleeves - a bit unusual for a tomesode kimono, since long sleeves indicate the wearer is unmarried, but these formal kimono were most often worn by the mother of the bride or groom at a wedding. Perhaps this was worn by an unmarried sister or aunt?

Beautiful yuzen technique, see the video below to see how it's done.

Overall black silk with five family crests on the upper section (one at the neck, one on the back of each sleeve, one on each side of the collar) confirms it is the highest level of formality for a kimono.
