"Orange 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 large blooms - plum blossoms (ume), bell flowers, camilla, and peonies, all floating on a field of textured silk. The fabric is a bit puffy, as if done with shibori stitching, but we think it is the way the silk was woven or treated after the florals were stenciled on. Some of the blossoms are edged with gold.

A few hard-to-see blemishes on the backside, see photo.
