Description
 
This style of kimono, called iromuji in Japanese, is typical of what would be worn by a practitioner of chado – traditional Japanese tea ceremony. More about iromuji below.

The color of this kimono is its message. It was difficult to capture in a photo, but could be called a deep honey, amber, or golden mustard - a color we only see occasionally. As an iromuji kimono, it is a striking but subtle background for an elegant, understated obi.

The silk is a soft crepe with a same-color lower lining. There is a single floral crest at the neck.

62" long, 52" wrist-to-wrist, 43" around the waist.

Aside from being in tune with the season and the age/status of the wearer, iromuji kimono are usually single color, tone-on-tone jacquard weaves. There is sometimes a subtle variation in the dye work which adds to the understated elegance. There might be a single crest at the back of the neck, very small woven design, or very subtle shading, and would be worn with an obi of muted colors or design. The importance of the single color and understated elegance is in keeping with the solemn celebration of the tea ceremony itself. The host/hostess wears a kimono that does not call attention to his or herself, so as to not detract from the ceremony.
