"Bingata Style" Furisode Kimono

This listing is for a traditional vintage furisode kimono originally created for a young, unmarried woman. Furisode are worn for formal events, such as Seijin-no-hi (Coming of Age Day, sometimes translated as Adults Day) in early January. Furisode are also worn for weddings, recitals, receptions, and other celebrations calling for formal attire. Note the long sleeves (furi = long, sode = sleeves) sometimes called "butterfly sleeves", which flow with grace when she gestures, attracting male attention!

This furisode is done in the bingata style of the Ryukyu Islands of Okinawa, but the kimono is an imitation likely done elsewhere in Japan. The elements, colors, stenciling, and shading of bingata work are highly prized throughout Japan, but authentic bingata is rare and very, very expensive. See video below (in Japanese) to learn about this amazing process.

This kimono features a overall repeated design of waves, florals, and huts against a periwinkle blue and white background. For more information about wearing and folding a furisode or the techniques to make this kimono, see videos below.

There is a tiny spot on the front sleeve, see photo.
