This listing is for a vintage Japanese kimono made for a young girl. There are (and were) few opportunities for little girls to wear kimono after the war, when western clothes were more common. So most post-war kimono for kids were for summer festivals or for formal occasions.

This kimono could actually be from the 1950s - it's a casual, home-spun fabric and design similar to what you'd see children wearing in pre- and post-war Japan. It's a simple, small repeat pattern of bamboo leaves in yellow, black, and white on a wool or wool-blend orange fabric. There are specks of black in the weave as well.

This kimono is wearable - it's a soft wool and not really scratchy, with a lining at the shoulders only. But please check the measurements against the child to confirm the fit before ordering. Kimono run small and remember that some of the length would be taken up at the waist when belted.

Vintage Japanese children's kimono make eye-catching displays in spaces too small to accommodate a full sized kimono or haori.
