Very rare and in impeccable wearable condition, this lovely Furisode Kimono is made of Kinsha silk- a beautiful type of Japanese silk that resembles crepe.

There is so much detail to this kimono, it is almost overwhelming!

There are beautiful flecks of gold foil sprinkled throughout, and each flower and design has been impeccably hand dyed or painted on. The embroidered flowers are done with a high-relief satin stitch, and there are flowers that have also been embroidered with metal beaded thread as well. The original obi is made of a thick and sturdy brocade and the kimono includes all of the original accessories. Whether you intend to wear this kimono traditionally as a wedding dress, to special occasions, or simply to wear it and admire the art - treat yourself to a beatiful piece of Japanese textile art to treasure and own.
