Embroidered Hawk Boy's Silk Kimono
  • Two kimono set – outer kimono and inner juban kimono
  • A pure silk, boy’s embroidered, lined kimono
  • An Omiya-mairi kimono, for a child's first visit to a Shinto shrine
  • A fabulous, sumptuously embroidered kimono, with an impressive, large hawk design. Lots of gold embroidered detail
  • The inner juban kimono is white with ichmatsu (checkered) weave
  • Entirely hand sewn, as authentic, vintage kimonos are
  • This will originally have been a vastly expensive kimono. Kids being kids, many vintage ones tend to be somewhat stained, this is in excellent condition
  • Beautiful to wear and makes a fabulous gift and makes a stunning wall hanging, either on a bamboo pole through the sleeves or framed
  • Made and bought in Japan
  • This kimono is the perfect size to be used as a display item. I have mocked up a frame around it, to show you how it would look displayed in a frame (the frame is not included in the sale; it’s not actually real, just drawn on as an example). It would also look great simply hung on the wall with a bamboo rod through the sleeves
  • The kimono is fastened with the attached white front ties. You thread the tie on the inner front edge out through the armhole and round to the back, then take the one on the outer front edge round to the back and tie them. An obi/sash is usually worn on top, such as a soft heko obi
  • Children traditionally wear kimonos with large, loosely stitched tucks on the outside of the shoulders. Length is adjusted by maikng a fold-over of fabric at the waist, held in place with a soft tie, then the obi is worn on top
  • The Japanese take great pains to store their traditional garments with the utmost care, which is why they stay in such exceptional condition. Some of my Japanese garments have large, white stitching (shitsuke) round the edges. The Japanese put these stitches in to keep the edges flat during long periods of storage, these stitches just get pulled out before wearing the garment


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


Sleeve end to sleeve end 90cm

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 from the measurements given

Embroidered Hawk Boy's Silk Kimono

SKU: ck6
  • Children's kimonos are always worn with big tucks llosely sewn on the outside of the dhoulders, narrowing the garments. The length is adjusted by making a fold-over of the kimno at the waist, held in place with a soft tie, then the obi worn on top


    Kimono require a sash to hold them closed. This is always bought separately. For casual wear they tend to use soft heko obi.

    Japanese children traditionally wear them with big tucks loosely stitched into the outside of the shoulders and round the waist.
