Fabulous, stylish and genuine unworn vintage silk kimono from about the late 1950s
As with traditional yakata, it’s been made from a very good quality silk fabric hand printed in the Art Deco style onto fabric which is clean and crisp.
Huge floral designs intertwined with abstract designs which have a gold overlay adorn the fabric.
The lining is in an ivory silk.
Usually these garments are never lined, this is an exception and was probably made for the western market.

Traditionally they are worn open and do not come with an Obi, that’s the belt, as these are usually purchased separately if required. The robe is very heavy and has been double lined on the sleeves and also to the inner placket

These garments are never machine stitched, but are completely hand sewn as this one is. The stitching is exceptionally good and without damage or pulls.

Freshly dry cleaned (February 2021) and is ready to wear.
This garment doesn’t have a size label, so I have given the following measurements taken seam to seam .

Sleeve edge to Sleeve edge 127cm ( 50inch )
Length 159cm ( 63inch )
Width 130cm (48inch )
Sleeve Length 50cm ( 18cm )

The above measurements were taken with the left side folded over the right.
The item has been shown in natural light for clarity and is completely untouched digitally.

All proceeds from the sale of this garment will be donated to charity.

Please drop me a line, if you have any questions.
