Beautiful Peacocks Furisode
  • A wonderful, sort of turquoise furisode kimono, entirely hand tailored silk with a hand applied design of magnificent kujaku (peacocks) and botan (peonies) plus beautiful, gold kinkoma (couched) embroidered outlining. The work of many artisans. This will have cost many thousands of pounds when new. A garment such as this is a labour of love created by traditional craftsmanship
  • Lightly padded at hem edge
  • Ideal for a bride, exquisite as a robe and magnificent as a hanging display
  • Made and bought in Japan
  • Type: A furisode kimono. Furisode means swinging sleeves. They have extra deep sleeves and are wor by young, unmarried women on special occasions. Once married or over about 30 years old, they stop wearing them. Furisodes cost thousands of pounds, £6,000 to £10,000 is not unusual and some cost way more. Even synthetic fabric ones cost a fortune. They are usually hired nowadays as they are too expensive to own just for special occasions but even hiring one is incredibly expensive

 

Condition: 
Extremely good - slight marks on the outside, which have almost halved the price it would otherwise have been. See photos.

Measurements:
Sleeve end to sleeve end 130cm
Sleeve seam to sleeve seam (yuki) 62cm
Sleeve depth 105cm
Length 180cm

  • Kimono require a sash to hold them closed. This is always bought separately. Men usually wear a kaku obi with their kimono or, casually at home, a soft heko obi

    Sizing: Japanese clothing is usually of adjustable fit, being mostly wrap-over or tie-to-fit items, so most garments fit a range of sizes. Because of this (and only really knowing my own size anyway) I can't really advise anyone on the fit. Please judge fit from the measurements given. Check length given for the garment, then measure from base of back of your neck down to judge that length on you
    Also measure from centre back of neck, along shoulder and down the arm to the wrist, then double that and compare it with the sleeve end measurement to judge sleeve length

    Some of my garments have white stitching (shitsuke) round the outside edges to keep the edges flat during long periods of storage, these stitches just get pulled out before wearing the garment

    Cleaning: Be very cautious about washing kimonos. All cleaning is done entirely at your own risk, as is standard with all vintage garments and items. I would advise only dry cleaning

    Colour: Please be aware that different monitors display colour slightly differently. Therefore the colour in the photos and description is a guide only
