This is an enchanting women’s silk kimono which has gorgeous white botan (peony), white tsubaki (camellia) and black ume (plum) blossoms pattern all over in an elegant and sophisticated purple colour. The kimono has beautiful classic Hanabishi (flower-shaped family crest) pattern in jacquard. It has a bachi-eri (folded lapel). The sleeves are long, which is the character of kimono from pre-WWll. The top lining is red silk blend and the bottom lining is turquoise. Viola Beach is a really charming antique piece.

Unfortunately it has a about 2cm tear in the centre at the back. There are some stains, but it is a wonderful and glamorous kimono. 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.
