"Red Plum Blossoms" 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 beautiful cream background with an extraordinary design of stenciled plum blossoms (ume) and brush-painted branches that connect them. Red blossoms with gold leaf edging and a watercolor effect on the bark of the tree branches.

A few blemishes on the backside, see photo, but still a stunning kimono.

See the video below for some beautiful examples of how these are worn traditionally and how the design is created.
