This exquisite 1930s Japanese kimono robe is a rare beauty full of detail. Hand-sewn and made of luxurious double-lined silk, with the outer layer having lovely shades of lilac, lavender, and deep violet. Hand printed in layers which shows the incredible detail that went into this time-consuming artistic process, with remarkable bright flowers and vines adorning its entirety. Long, traditional 33.5" furisode sleeves that are completely open on the inner side which adds so much drama to the wearer, falling well below the knee. This enchanting dressing gown could be worn open as a boho-chic duster, or cinched closed at the waist with the accompanying sash tie. The inner layer has a subtle yet very beautiful ombre effect with shades of pink, cream, and purple. A very special piece that is perfect for performers or collectors. Sure to wow anyone that sees it!
CONDITION - Excellent: no holes, or rips. There are some age marks scattered throughout the kimono but are light enough to not distract from its beauty. One water mark on the inner layer right at the hem in the center. One tiny little mend about 1mm wide that I missed until taking measurements. There are a couple of spots in the dark violet where the natural silk color shows. Completely structurally sound and in overall remarkable condition.
