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. 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 is an understated and delicately drawn design of large white paper peonies with some gray shading against a deep burnt orange and pale pink background. The design was created with the yuzen technique (see video below for how this is done), brush-colored and embellished with silver embroidered detail on some of the petal tips.

In nearly excellent condition, there are slight blemishes on one sleeve - see photos.


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