This lovely ladies ro silk summer kimono has a beautiful yanagi (willow), tonbo (dragonfly) and water stream design in blue, black and white lattice pattern which gives such a retro feeling. The colours on the design have a cool summer feel. The kimono reminds me of the summer time in Japan. It is a so-called hitoe (single lining), which means it actually has no lining. It has a bachi-eri (folded lapel). The texture is light. Morning Flight is a really cool and dramatic piece. 

The kimono has small stains and certain wear as an antique piece. There are some other flaws and a repair on the front right top. Please check detail photos and '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.
