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 lively mix of color and design - large green pine boughs look like clouds floating through a bamboo forest. The bamboo stalks are wide with an ombre orange that lightens towards the top. The dark orange bamboo leaves are actually clustered to look like paulownia flowers.

Gold painted details on the pine boughs and florals. The background is an ivory silk with a geometric lightening motif that becomes bigger and more bold towards the hem.

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