"Cobalt Yuzen" 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 a strong cobalt blue - somewhat unusual for some reason - with a contemporary feel. The pine, flowers, bamboo and crests are done in a bold, flat pattern where the white edging clearly shows through on each element. The white border is a telltale sign of the yuzen technique - see video below for how it is done. Bright, strong colors and a very festive feel to this kimono.

For more information about wearing and folding a furisode or the techniques to make this kimono, see videos below.
