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

This furisode is a creamy, satiny silk with a large basketweave jacquard behind the festive green garden motif. Hundreds of long thin blades of grass in varying shades of green provide a springtime background for the peonies, camella and plum blossoms that poke their heads out from the foliage.

Featured flowers are outlined in gold couching at the front panel and left shoulder. The white area sweeps around the waist to provide a more quiet background for a formal obi - but this would make a striking wall display!

Sleeve length = 43"

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).
