"Bird and Bouquet" Tomesode Kimono

Elegant, "Mother of the Bride" style tomesode kimono - made for formal wear.

Brilliant medallion shapes filled with bright mums in reds and blues. Behind the sweeping design is a soft grayish purple. Look closer to see the delicately drawn sparrow in the front, featured design area.

See video below on the yuzen technique.

Five paulownia crests.

Very good vintage condition - lining is heavily blemishes, but wouldn't be seen while wearing or being displayed.

A tomesode kimono is typically overall black silk with five family crests on the upper section (one at the neck, one on the back of each sleeve, one on each side of the collar) which confirms it is the highest level of formality for a kimono. The design stretches across the hemline with more image in the front, where it would be seen best, but continues across to the back.
