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 floral dream - with large paper peonies floating against a cream background. Gold accent areas behind some of the florals really help them pop. See close ups for the elaborately embroidered details on the featured florals. The woven tone-on-tone pattern of the jacquard includes many traditional elements that take on a shine in angled light.

The kimono is unlined except at the shoulders, suggesting it was made for summer wear.


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