Black & Orange Silk Kimono
  • More photos HERE
  • A rinzu silk, Japanese, jyusan-mairi kimono (the teenager's first furisode kimono) but shown modelled on an adult with 34C bust, height 5’2”, though too long for her height when worn as seen in photos. Note that the sash in the photos not included. This kimono has lovely, very deep sleeves. Rinzu silk has a lovely, smooth, satin type weave
  • Camellia, Houou (Oriental Phoenix) design.
  • May have white shitsuke (basting stitches) around some edges, on the outside of the garment. These are simply to keep it neat during storage and just get pulled out before use
  • Japanese girls traditionally wear them with big tucks loosely stitched into the outside of the shoulders and round the waist. The tucks, if still in the garments, are very loosely stitched and can be easily removed to enlarge the garments, which means they often can then fit a woman very nicely.
  • Made in and bought from Japan
  • Type: A jyusan-mairi kimono, which is actually a teenage girl’s first furisode (ultra deep sleeved) kimono but, as you can see in the photos, also suitable for an adult. Modelled in the photos by a woman with a 34C bust and height of 5'"2. Similar sized kimonos are shown below this kimono’s photos, on an adult who is a UK size 10 and 155cm tall. My sister, a UK size 12-14 wears kimonos of this size, open as coats
  • Silk textile. Sash not included
  • Awashe (lined).
  • Colour: Please be aware that different monitors display colour slightly differently. Therefore the colour in the photos and description is a guide only


Condition: 
Excellent

Measurements:
Sleeve end to sleeve end 123cm
Sleeve seam to sleeve seam 54cm
Length 148.5cm

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.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. If shown modelled, the woman in the photos is 125 cm from wrist to wrist.

  • 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
