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

This furisode features an overall puckered kaneko shibori silk with a floral motif on the skirt portion of the robe and more florals at the sleeves and shoulders. The pink has a hint of raspberry, and you can see a floral jacquard in the weave when the silk is angled to the light just right.

The lining shows mottling from age - not unusual for a vintage kimono - but it has no effect on the wearability or displayability of this beautiful kimono.

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).
