"River of Life" Furisode Kimono

This is a traditional furisode kimono created for a young, unmarried woman. Note the long sleeves (furi = long, sode = sleeves) sometimes called "butterfly sleeves", which flow with grace when she gestures, attracting male attention!

Beautiful red-orange with a champagne colored cream background sets the backdrop for a collaged design of florals, flowing water, waves and more! Floral jacquard with some couching and embroidery. So much to see - what a gorgeous display piece!

Most of the design is done with the yuzen technique - see video below.
