cubist shuiro kimono

320.00

Shuiro is the Japanese name for the vibrant colour of this kimono. In Japanese culture the colour red is highly significant and is reserved for celebration and is used to signify a happy occasion. The bold graphic design of this kimono is woven into the silk using the meisen technique.

Meisen is identifiable by the ikat-style weave which creates a charming feathered edge around the design. The technique was used predominately in the latter Meiji period and continued to be a popular method of production up until 1950.

Despite its age this kimono has been lovingly preserved and remains in very good condition.
