This womens meisen sha (silk gauze) summer kimono has a vibrant, colourful and unique graphic pattern.
The contrast of all the colours - red, green, off-white, black and teal is fantastic. It is so-called 'hitoe' (single lining), which means it has no lining.
Whirling Dervish is definitely a special antique piece and one of my favourite kimonos. It is fabulous for display as a piece of art for a room or also superb to wear.

It has certain wear and marks, but as a whole, it is in pretty good condition for the age. 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.
