A rinzu silk kimono featuring 'chayatsuji' (water garden scenery) with 'ume'(Japanese plum), 'kaede' (maple leaf) and 'shippou-tsunagi' (jointed four circles) patterns. Shibori is the main technique utilized, with the addition of yuzen-dyeing (painting) and plentiful foil highlighting. The soft, high-quality rinzu (damask) silk base is woven with motifs of wave, bird and flower circle patterns. Very good condition, with minor imperfections. 51" from sleeve-end to sleeve-end x 60" height.
