Vintage Japanese Kimono Robe Furisode Formal Silk Woman's Sign of Spring
"Sign of Spring" - Women's Furisode Kimono. This listing is for a traditional vintage furisode kimono originally created for a young, unmarried woman. Furisode are worn for formal events, such as Seijin-no-hi (Coming of Age Day, sometimes translated as Adults Day) in early January. Furisode are also worn for weddings, recitals, receptions, and other celebrations calling for formal attire. Note the long sleeves (furi = long, sode = sleeves) sometimes called "butterfly sleeves", which flow with grace when she gestures, attracting male attention! This furisode features a very artsy, slightly abstract design of plum blossom (ume) trees - rarely are they depicted as straight and branch-less as these.

Ume blossoms are the first sign of Spring in Japan. The flowers are white with red accents in the center, all set against a powder pink background silk. There is a very light blemish on the back sleeve corner, see photo. Material: Silk Length: 59" (41" Sleeve Length) Width: 50" Wrist to Wrist Body: 52" Waist/Hips Condition: Very Good Vintage.
