Cherry Blossom Red Ko Furisode
  • A red, ko furisode kimono, with very pretty sakura (cherry blossom). Tip - you can tell they are cherry blossom by the indentation at the tip of each petal, ume (plum blossom) is rounded with no indentation and bellflower is pointed
  • Type: A ko-furisode kimono. Furisode means swinging sleeves, which, on furisodes, are incredibly deep sleeves, and ko means small, so a ko-furisode is a furisode kimono with slightly less deep sleeves, but still extremely deep and much deeper than a standard kimono's sleeves. They are usually hired nowadays as they are too expensive to own just for special occasions, including synthetic textile ones, but even hiring one is incredibly expensive
  • Awase (lined)
  • High quality, synthetic textile. Gently hand washable, in cool water with a mild, colour detergent. Do not soak, do not use bio detergent, do not rub or wring.
  • Made and bought in Japan

  • 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
