This is a women's silk kimono which has a soft and smooth touch in a good quality of silk with a sophisticated water birds motif, kaede (maple) and water stream design in a glamorous dark teal.
The lapel is bachi-eri (folded lapel). The lining of the top main part is in ecru silk, the bottom part is in black chairmen (crepe) silk and the lining of sleeves is in red silk.
Originally the sleeves were longer but the previous owner preferred them taken in so there is room for long 17.5cm (6 1/4“) if you'd like. Homeward Bound is an attractive antique piece.
It has marks and certain wear. 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.
