"Tsujigahana" Furisode Kimono

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

This furisode is especially rare as it features tsujigahana - a design technique that is harder and harder to find. See video below for what's involved in tsujigahana, which combines shibori, stencilling, and painted details.

Large sweeping arches of purple and pink create a movement and draw the eye across the kimono. Many different shibori techniques were used to create the arching bands, the florals, and the very cute plover birds. For more information about wearing a furisode or the techniques to make this kimono, see videos below.
