bouquet kimono

420.00

This elegant 1940s kimono has a design of falling bouquets and trailing ribbons. Soft pink and red tones are woven together with a feathered-ikat edge which is typical of Meisen silk.  To create the design the silk is loosely woven and then dyed using stencils before they are woven together. Meisen has been a popular technique in Japan since the late Meiji period, but became particularly fashionable in the 1920s-1950s as the new technique allowed for less traditional designs and playful use of colour. This kimono is lined with a complimentary red cotton lining. The longer length of sleeve is an indication that this is a Pre WWII kimono.

Despite it's age this kimono has been lovingly preserved and remains in very good condition.
