This is a women's hemp blend summer kimono which has white shell like pattern and refreshing water stream design in cool navy blue. It is so-called hitoe (single lining), which means it has no lining. Ocean Deep is a lovely vintage piece.

This kimono is quite long. Please check the measurements. 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.

Or you could make a belt from cutting about 20 cm off the bottom of the kimono and sewing it. I sometimes do this for modern cotton kimonos because they usually come with a long length. They are long because Japanese people tuck the kimono in around their waist when they wear kimonos.

It has certain wear and a couple of tiny marks, but as a whole is is in a 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.
