Vibrant Tropical Flowers on Black Kimono Silk Crepe Pieces, 14" x 68" #39313
These black silk pieces were once from a Tomesode, a formal and elegant kimono for married women. The rich traditional Japanese design is printed on true black silk chirimen crepe. There is an incredibly alive, joyous floral design on each piece. The size of the artwork varies from 10" x 12" to 13" x 16". Some of the orange flowers have gold or silver embroidery. Some of the leaves and flowers have bright gold highlights. The images are positioned towards the bottom of the drapey, supple, mid-weight black silk crepe. We have 3 of these available; they are all 14" x 68" and in perfect condition. Each is slightly different in terms of the design, size and placement of the artwork, so that the coordinating design worked visually when this stunning kimono was being worn. Absolutely beautiful. Japan.
