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

This furisode is breath of fresh air - inspired by the sweepting design of petals that seem to fly in the breeze from hem to shoulder. A sweet coral pink background with ivory areas that seem to beam light into the design.

You almost miss the many thin lines that eminate from the center back - another layer of design. And the florals - large paper peony blooms, some with embroidered centers.

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).
