Description
 
This listing is for a vintage Japanese kimono. The yuzen dye work on this beauty is so striking. Note how the colors shift from reds at the hem to blues at the shoulder.

The large clusters of chyrsanthemums were applied with several stencils and shaded by hand.

Quite wearable but also makes an eye-catching display piece. There is a slight blemish on the back of the right sleeve seam (see last photo) but it does not detract from the desirability of this lovely silk kimono.

See video below for how the yuzen technique is done - a fascinating, pains-taking, many-step process.
