Vintage Junihitoe Style Silk Japanese Wedding Uchikake Kimono, Woven, Cranes
This is a vintage silk Junihitoe Japanese uchikake, a formal outer kimono traditionally worn over kakeshita (wedding furisode) by the bride. This uchikake - made in the "junihitoe-style" - features woven motifs of cranes, sakura, and what appears to be peach blossoms against a woven grid background of gold, green and pink. Exterior material is heavyweight silk. Lining is of bright red smooth habotai silk with purple, green, and yellow "faux layers". Hemline is thickly padded and is meant to trail along the ground. This would make a perfect addition for kimono enthusiasts who are putting together a traditional wedding kimono ensemble.

If you're going to a unique, offbeat look, this uchikake will look fabulous with your dream wedding dress! This furisode would still make a lovely wall hanging as the focal point in an Asian-themed interior setting. Age: Late Showa period, possibly early Heisei period (1980s).

There are a few very slight snags on the exterior and a couple of age spots in one of the sleeve linings. There is also some slight fraying on a small area on the edge of the collar (shown in last photo). Length (shoulder-to-hem): About 79 / 200.5cm.

Total width (sleeve-to-sleeve): 55 / 140cm. Feel free to ask me any questions about this listing. Please note there may be delays during the holiday season.
