"Butterflies" 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 features a mint green-blue background with shimmering woven butterflies in coral pink, purple, and gold. Other small patterns throughout include florals, maple leaves (momiji), bamboo, and pine.

See the video below for some beautiful examples of how these are worn traditionally.
