Item Details
Location:
Japan
Date:
Taisho to very early Showa (1912-1930)
Description:
A sheer ro hitoe kimono with all motifs constructed utilizing the shibori (tie-dye) technique. Our assessment is that the variations in color in the shibori - for example some yellowish areas - are intentional and are attributes to the total aesthetic. The shibori work on this kimono is exceptionally intricate, and must have been accomplished by a gifted craftman. Very good condition. 50" from sleeve-end to sleeve-end x 63" height.

$10000
