"Imperial Carts" Girl's Kimono

This is a formal kimono for a young girl – possibly meant for the Shichi-Go-San Festival, where children who are three, five, or seven years old visit the local temples and shrines as a rite of passage. See below for a cute video featuring kids wearing traditional kimono.

This is a stunning kimono with a red and pink shaded background and a mix of traditional designs: imperial treasure carts, pine, momiji, temari, and many florals (mums, peonies, plum blossoms, sakura (cherry blossoms), and irises).

The original tag is still attached, suggesting this kimono has never been worn. The tag says this kimono is silk with a synthetic lining.

The patterning was done with the yuzen technique with gold/silver leaf accents - see videos below for how this is done.
