Women's vintage, kimono - black with plum blossoms, maple, and chrysanthemums

$42.00

This listing is for the kimono seen in the photographs. Please note that kimono do not have belts or loops for belts.

This beautiful, vintage kimono is created entirely of silk. The exterior is in near-perfect shape however the lining has some stains. Please read the description carefully to learn about these flaws

The exterior of this kimono features a dyed pattern of kiku (chrysanthemum), ume (plume blossoms), acer (maple leaves) and an abstract linear design over a black colored background. The dyed patterns are variegated in hues of blue, pink, and pale orange-brown. The entire pattern is over-dyed with a small dot pattern in an off white color. I do not see any damage or staining on the exterior of this kimono.

The silk that was used to create this kimono is a "kinsha" silk. This is a light to medium weight, crepe silk that has finer "wrinkles". This gives the kimono a smooth (but not slippery) texture, slight sheen and lovely drape.

The last two photos show the color of the kimono most accurately. Crayola brand crayons were placed in the photos for color comparison. The exterior of the kimono (photo 10) and the lower lining of the kimono (photo 9) can be seen.

Please enlarge the photos to see the colors and texture of the silk.

The kimono is fully lined with silk. The upper lining is a lighter weight, off-white colored silk while the lower lining is a light to medium weight, pink colored silk.

The upper lining has some staining. There are larger, pink and orange colored stains on the right side (near sleeve area). This can be seen in the 7th photo. There is also a small stain at the center of the back. This can be seen in the 8th photo. These stains will not be seen when the kimono is worn. There are also a few pulls in the silk of the upper lining. Some of these pulls can also be seen in the 8th photo. I do not see any stains on the lower (pink) portion of the lining.

Please read the dimensions to determine if you will find the size desirable for you. 

*Length of kimono: about 59 inches (150 cm)

-kimono are folded when worn to adjust the length. For the majority of women the hem of this kimono may drag on the floor unless it is adjusted. Measure from your shoulder to your ankle. The difference between this number and 59 inches will be the amount that needs to be folded. For example: If you measure 50 inches from your shoulders to your ankles then 9 inches of the kimono will be needed to be folded to adjust the length. If you measure greater than 59 inches from your shoulders to your ankles than this kimono will be too short for you.

*Total width of kimono with sleeves: 50.25 inches (127.6 cm)

-Stand with your arms spread out and have a friend measure from one wrist, across your shoulders and to your other wrist. This will help determine where the sleeve will fall on your wrist.

*Length of sleeves(how far the sleeves fall): 17.5 inches (44.5cm)

*width of kimono: 52 inches (132cm)

- measure around your hips at the widest point. Subtract this number from 52 inches (132cm). If the difference is about 16 inches (41cm) or greater than this kimono should fit you well. If the difference is about 10 inches (25cm) this kimono should still fit you but it may not overlap as much in the front. If the difference is 10 inches (25cm) or less than this kimono will not overlap enough in the front and will not fit you correctly. Of course, you can still wear it as an open robe or use it for decoration!

I believe that the pictures show a good representation of the fabric colors however, please remember that colors may look different on your monitor. This is a vintage item so there may be small blemishes or marks others than those noted in the description. This item has been stored for many years so there may be a slight storage smell although I do not notice one. Items can be hung in the shade to remove odor. Dry cleaning is recommended.
