"Peacock Feathers" 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 features a wonderfully asymmetrical design of sweeping, turquoise green peacock feathers against a cream silk background. The woven jacquard pattern of leaves rests behind the heart-shaped ends of the feathers, many of which are colorfully embroidered.
