This antique women’s silk kimono has golden beige and light brown Yabane (the feathers of an arrow) kasuri (ikat) pattern and colourful shima 縞 (pinstriped) design.

The top lining is red silk, typical of the Taisho Era and the bottom is coral pink silk blend.

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. Stand By Me is a stylish antique piece.

It has certain wear and some marks, but as a whole it 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 £8 or £10 for a belt.
