Description
 
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.

This furisode is absolutely gorgeous. The background is an ivory silk featuring a diamond lozenge-motif grid jacquard - and this is echoed in the lower lining. The patterning of orange wisteria blooms that seem to sway in the breeze is dotted with several large, elaborately embroidered rondels filled with blossoms. So much handwork in this kimono! Quite special.

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!
