Cranes & Beautiful Scenery Kimono
  • A ro weave, tomesode kimono, with a flock of cranes over glorious landscape. It is slightly sheer
  • A formal, summer kimono, with 5 mon (crests), the mon are kiri (paulownia), said, in Japanese mythology, to have the only branches that phoenix will land on
  • A hitoe (unlined) kimono, to keep the wearer cooler.
  • Synthetic, ro weave textile. Ro weave fabric has light, airy weave and is used in summer weight kimonos, to keep the wearer cooler on hot days during August to September. Usually the ro lines run vertically, when they run horrizontally the textile is known as tate ro
  • Made and bought in Japan
  • 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
  • Type: A tomesode kimono. Tomesode kimonos have one, three or five mon (crests), the more mon, the more formal the occasion it can be worn at
  • Itsutsu mon. Garments with mon (crests) are divided into three types: itsutsu-mon (5 mon), mitsu-mon (3 mon) and hitotsu-mon (1 mon). The more mon it has, the more formal an occasion it can be worn at

  • 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
