This listing is for a. Wonderful pre-WWII kimono is in excellent condition!
This item was dated to before WWII, which makes it likely to be from the 1930s, because of its longer sleeves, a style feature of kimonos from before WWII. It is made of 100% silk and is incredibly soft to the touch. This style of kimono is called iromuji, which means one color. Iromuji are a type of kimono without any colored patterns. There are subtle patterns woven into the fabric which gives it a unique texture.
Iromuji are known to be elegant and sophisticated rather than flashy. I'm really excited about this find because of its long history, beautiful condition, and beautiful color! There are no holes, tears, stains, rips, or any other noticeable flaws that I can see, but it is a vintage item, so some wear is to be expected. Basting stitches (white stitches used to secure a kimono before cleaning) are still partially leftover, indicating the item may have just been cleaned, and they can be removed gently with a scissor.
It's obvious this was a once vibrant red kimono but due to age the color has become a little bit dulled. However, as you can see from the photos, the red is still quite saturated and stunning. The red color, in my opinion, has a blue undertone rather than an orange undertone. Please check the pictures on many monitors because there may be color differences on different machines!
The collar is not included with the kimono. Thank you for looking and please feel free to ask me any questions!
