"Pink Shimmer" Furisode Kimono

This listing is for a traditional vintage furisode kimono originally created for a young, unmarried woman. Furisode are worn for formal events, such as Seijin-no-hi (Coming of Age Day, sometimes translated as Adults Day) in early January. Furisode are also worn for weddings, recitals, receptions, and other celebrations calling for formal attire. Note the long sleeves (furi = long, sode = sleeves) sometimes called "butterfly sleeves", which flow with grace when she gestures, attracting male attention!

This furisode features a pretty pink ombre - darker at the hem and sleeves with a mix of florals and butterflies. Wonderful shading and attention to detail plus lots of gold leaf. See video below on this technique.

Signature in gold on the inside front panel.


See the video below for some beautiful examples of how these are worn traditionally and how the design is created.
