The depiction of white cherry blossoms in full bloom on a dark setting would suggest that this Kimono is elegantly designed for evening wear. The sheen fabric is woven with such detail that the texture gives the effect of dew droplets settled on teal petals.
This Kimono is shorter in length than most (and slightly more narrow) which will make it ideal and practical for contemporary dress ups e.g. wear it open as a light coat, or belt over it at your waist. This will make a brilliant addition to any wardrobe and complement a variety of styles.
Condition: Vintage, excellent
Fabric (best guess):
Outer fabric is likely to be silk with a 30% chance that it could be synthetic, in which case it is better to treat it as silk.
Lining is polyester/synthetic, which is likely a replacement of the original lining.
Handmade in Japan
Recommended care: professional dry cleaning, and regular steaming.
*Kimono has been treated with high pressure steam to penetrate and sanitise the fabric, however it is recommended that you dry clean the garment before wear.
Back width (taken along bust line):
Measurements are taken along one side of garment lying flat and are best compared against a similar item of clothing rather than against your body.
