Gosho Guruma Kimono 1
  • A very lovely kimono, with exquisite flowers, pine branches and gosho guruma (Imperial carriages) on it. The photos really do not do this kimono justice at all. The design on it is beautiful. 
  • This is a smaller kimono, much loved and worn by my adult daughter, size 8-10, fastened with a simple wide belt, and worn open as a coat by my sister size 12-14. This type of kimono is particularly great for instant elegance when lounging at home.
  • **If shown with a sash, the sash is not included; for display purposes only, to let you see it closed, however, all kimono require an obi or some sort of sash to hold them closed; these are always bought separately. Think of it like a skirt and blouse, you can't wear either on its own, you buy them separately and mix and match
  • Made in and bought from Japan
  • Synthetic textile
  • An awase (lined) kimono


Condition:

Excellent

 

Measurements:
Sleeve end to sleeve end 112cm
Sleeve seam to sleeve seam 49cm

Sleeve depth 75cm

Centre back to sleeve end (yukitake) 56cm
Length 132cm

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
