"Royal Purple" Woman's Iromuji Kimono

Deep, rich royal purple with a jacquard weave that features bouquets of little mums and paulownia against a wavy lined background.

Single embroidered (!) paulownia crest at the neck. Fancy lower inner lining in the same pattern but a lilac color.

This style of kimono, called iromuji in Japanese, is typical of what would be worn by a practitioner of chado – traditional Japanese tea ceremony. Aside from being in tune with the season and the age/status of the wearer, “tea ceremony kimono” are usually single color, tone-on-tone jacquard weaves. They may have a single crest at the back of the neck or a very small design or a very subtle shading, and would be worn with an obi of muted colors or design. The importance of the single color and understated elegance is in keeping with the solemn celebration of the tea ceremony itself. The host/hostess wears a kimono that does not call attention to his or herself, so as to not detract from the ceremony.
