"Red Plum" 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 large plum blossoms and branches (some with couched outlines) reaching across the kimono from hem across the sleeves and shoulders. Olive green, berry purple, and light blue provide accent dues and small florals stenciled in gold fill bands of color behind the larger florals. The background is red, though it may look more orange in the photos than it is, with thousands of tiny cranes woven into the silk jacquard.

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

There is a dime-size spot on the middle back and a series of tan blemishes near the hem on the backside edge, see photo. A sash would cover the spot and the tan blemishing is not so noticeable when worn since it is near the hem, close to being covered by the front panel overlap. Still, the price reflects these issues.
