This is a women's silk kimono which has a fantastic floral pattern all over in a beautiful royal blue. The design of the flowers is really enchanting and also the kimono has cool stripe design. The flowers are kikyo (Chinese bellflower), tachibana (mandarin orange), kiku (chrysanthemum), matsu (pine) and sasa no ha (bamboo leaf). Some parts of the design are embroidered.
It has bachi-eri (folded lapel). The lining of the top main part is in natural off-white cotton and bottom is royal blue silk.
Betty Blue is a gorgeous and attractive antique piece.
This kimono is quite long. Please check the measurement. You may need to have a bit of tuck at your waist with this length of kimono unless you are very tall. You can adjust the length by using a koshihimo (a cord tied around the waist of a womans kimono to hold it in place). Koshihimo is available for £4. Please ask for more details.
It has certain wear and some flaws, but as a whole, it is in pretty good condition for the age. Please check the detail photos and the 'Extra Images'
Note: This kimono does not come with a belt. If you would like one, please check my casual obi collection on casual-obi-belt.html. Prices start from £7 or £8 for a belt.
