"Mates for Life" Wedding Kimono (Kakeshita)

Bright orange, crepey silk background with diagonal bands collaged with color.

The featured imagery are mandarin ducks - a symbol of fidelity because they mate for life - brightly colored and usually appearing in pairs.

The mix of florals include mums, wisteria, and irises, and other traditional patterns shown are flowing water, momiji, and bamboo leaves. The pattern was applied with the yuzen technique - stenciled and then brush colored by hand.

A metallic gold speckle outlines the edges of the layers of the bands, giving a shaded, ombre effect. Some gold couching there as well.

This is a kakeshita style of wedding kimono, with a lighter weight silk and a lighter padding at the hem. It can be belted.
