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 a traditional treasure trove of design - mums in red, orange, gold and purple, some with gold centers. The balcony of a small tea house peeks through the garden - its beams are edged with gold couching. Gold stenciling as well as orange shading on the lining.

This is a yuzen kimono - created with a many-step process one must see to believe. Watch the videos below to learn more. It's quite wearable but oh what a display it makes!

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