This listing is for a traditional vintage furisode kimono originally created for a young, unmarried woman.

The background silk of this kimono features thousands of cranes in flight, with some reflecting in the light. A series of bright red flowers were painted along the outer boundaries of the kimono -along the hem up the sleeves, and sweeping around the shoulders. Masterful brush work.

Sleeve length = 36".

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!

If you'd like to display the kimono, we offer hanging rods as an option (see above).
