"Wisteria and Cranes" 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 sweeping design with dozens of auspicious elements: cranes, bamboo, pine, peony, plum blossoms, wisteria, momiji (maple leaves), folding fans, and more! An arch of dark purple across the shoulders and light purple across the bottom. Look closely to see the elaborate detail in each design element. Fantastic.
