"Festive Fans" Wedding Kimono (Uchikake)

This is a vintage Japanese uchikake wedding kimono - an amazing display piece.

This uchikake features a flurry of floating fans with embroidered ivy leaves done with a satin stitch and gold couching. The colors on this are so lively - seems like it might have been meant for a summer wedding. Red padded hemline is a nod to former times when the gown would have dragged across the tatami mat...

There are several types of Japanese wedding kimono (uchikake, kakeshita, shiromuku), but the uchikake is the heaviest and most colorful. It is meant to be worn on top of the kakeshita wedding kimono, and is not meant to be tied with an obi. Rather, it is draped over the shoulders and worn mostly for picture taking. These make amazing displays.
