"Bright Pine" Wedding Kimono (Uchikake)

This is a vintage Japanese uchikake wedding kimono - an amazing collector's piece.

This uchikake features heavily embroidered silver fans and treasure carts nestled in patches of pine boughts in bright greens and gold. The background color - a reddish orange - is also quite bright. If you're looking for a dramatic display piece, this could be it!

Look closely at the close up photos to really appreciate the hand work. The imagery is embroidered, not woven!

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.
