This antique women’s black summer silk kimono has sky blue and silver Yabane (the feathers of an arrow) kasuri (ikat) pattern.

It is so-called hitoe (single lining), which means it has no lining. The collar is bachi-eri (folded lapel).

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

It would be stunning to use as a dress and also display as a fabulous piece of art for a room. One Way or Another is such a stylish antique piece.

It has certain wear and marks. 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 £8 or £10 for a belt.
