Traditional Japanese Kimono。**I have loads of kimono on my eBay shop - please take a look at my full range!**。Japanese clothing is usually of adjustable fit. Western women usually wear kimono open around the house as a gown, meaning it will also fit larger sizes. Please message me if you have any sizing concerns, i'll be happy to help。Shoulder to shoulder seam is 23.5"。Length: 61"。This kimono is made from rinzu silk. Rinzu silk can be both light-weight or heavy as the silk satin damask fabric consists of two different types of silk threads. Rinzu is often used to make silk kimonos with geometric, floral patterns or shiny, subtle repeating patterns on matte backgrounds.。There are elements of surihaku - gold painting, on the kimono as well as gorgeous intricate gold couched outlines on the design (Couching is gold thick threads that are laid on the fabric surface and stitched down with fine silk threads.)。This kimono is known as a houmongi. Houmongi are considered to be more formal than Tsukesage. The background can be any color (including black and white), and the design is dyed in such a way that it extends smoothly across the seams when the kimono is sewn together, creating an unbroken design.。Excellent condition。All my kimonos are authentic Japanese, this one dates to around the 1970's and is characterised by the ombre dip dyed lining。The lining is also silk.。Additional Information。Kimono’s should be worn left over right. Only a Japanese corpse wears a kimono right over left.。Kimono's should not be washed. They should be taken to a specialist dry cleaners. They can be aired outdoors for freshness.。This vintage kimono is not the same as many of the kimonos sold in the UK, or to tourists in Japan which are often made in China and of poor quality cotton or synthetic but rather these garments are genuine, Japanese, vintage, traditional, hand-stitched or partially hand-stitched (unless otherwise stated) garments.。WHY CAN SOME WOMEN'S KIMONO BE SO LONG? Contemporary and formal kimono are very long indeed. This is because they are traditionally shortened by hitching up at the waist and hiding the excess fabric behind the wide obi belt. Older kimono tend to be shorter and smaller.。Occasionally someone asks me about a matching "belt" or sash for a kimono. Japanese women, instead, wear a kimono with an obi--usually a wide, stiff, brocaded, 15-foot long piece that wraps around the waist several times and ties in an elaborate bow in back. They rarely match these to the kimono, but rather choose contrasting colors and patterns. The only kimono that are sold with an accompanying sash in a matching fabric, are garments made specifically for the Western tourist trade or for export to the West.。One must bear in mind that most are vintage items, which I strive to describe accurately and honestly. Most are in excellent vintage condition and therefore look virtually new but all are vintage, even the unused garments, which are or deadstock. A very, very few smell of mothballs or a touch of vintage mustiness but that is rare. This can be aired out. I find hanging the kimono over a radiator works well, or if you have access to outdoor space and the weather is dry, you can hang it on a washing line. Some synthetic textile and cotton kimonos can be hand washed but do this entirely at your own risk and only use a detergent for colours, as all other detergents contain bleaching agents to brighten whites. I usually mention any mothball or musty smell, if one does have it, but one must bear it in mind it is a possibility, even if not stated in the description, whenever buying vintage and antique textiles.。Storage: Hang up your garment for a few hours prior to wearing, to remove fold creases. They should also be hung out to air 4 times per year, if not worn frequently. Hang your garment to air for a day or so immediately after purchase too, as it will have been stored for a while. The Japanese take great pains to store their traditional garments with the utmost care, which is why they stay in such exceptional condition. Some of my Japanese garments have white stitching (shitsuke) round the outside edges. The Japanese put these stitches in to keep the edges flat during long periods of storage, these stitches just get pulled out before wearing the garment.。More Kimonos in our shop so take a look!。Our reference: 7。If there is ever a problem with your purchase please contact us first and we will endeavour to sort the problem out 。 。
