"Yuzen Gold 2" Kimono Tapestry

This re-purposed length of a tomesode ("mother-of-the-bride") kimono makes a dazzling and festive tapestry. Traditional black background (as most tomesode are black with an elaborate design on the hem) with a design that includes a treasure cart , peonies (botan in Japanese), spider mums, maple leaves (momiji), plum blossoms (ume), and more. The petals are couched in gold, and gold leaf covers the yuzen outlining of each element.
See the videos below for more information on these traditional textile techniques.
We create these tapestries by salvaging the designed hem area of a kimono when other sections of the garment are beyond repair or rescue. We keep the processing simple, retaining the original lining and stitching (usually hand done) and simply finishing off the upper edge to allow a display rod (up to 1.5" diameter) to be inserted across the top.
