- Type: A furisode kimono. Furisode means ‘swinging sleeves'. They have extra deep sleeves, much deeper than standard kimonos, and are worn on special occasions. They are usually hired for special occasions nowadays, as they are too expensive to own but even hiring one is incredibly expensive, hiring a synthetic one costs well over £200 for one day and a silk one costs way more to hire.
Excellent – some minor foxing and a hint of yellowing on the upper lining. Foxing is an orange-brown speckling that can develop on natural fibre textiles when stored in hot and humid conditions, such as the Japanese summer. Foxing does not weaken the textile, just discolours it.
