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

This furisode is contemporary (maybe 1990s?) and feels modern and luxurious. A deep blue background to the filled field of flowers, but look closely to see the butterflies that are also filled with a floral design. Lovely, subtle touches of color on the white plum blossoms.

Note that there are two simulated "underlayers) at the collar - these would be folded on each other to create the illusion of an underkimono, and the colors really perk up the "V" at the neckline. The same pink silk peeks out at the sleeve lining and was used for the lower lining.

Sleeve length = 44"

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).
