This is a women's kinsha chirimen 錦紗縮緬 (fine crepe) summer kimono which has a soft and smooth touch in a good quality of silk. It is so-called 'hitoe' (single lining), which means it has no lining.

The rare greenish blue background colour is stylish. The kimono has elegant aoi karakusa 葵唐草 (hollyhock) and shima 縞 (stripes) pattern all over. It also has a beautiful floral jacquard design.  The lapel is bachi-eri (folded lapel). Blue velvet is a really smart and attractive antique piece.

It has certain wear and a tiny flaw, but as a whole it is in a very 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.
