Sheer Silk Kimono - wafuku.co.uk 1
  • A ro silk, kuro (black) tomesode kimono, with a golden Mr Moon stencilled on the front. The gold is very slightly sparkly too.
  • Made of high quality ro silk. Ro is a weave of silk that is slightly sheer when held up to the light and it has a banded, airy weave, for coolness in summer. Keeping the wearer cool is also why it is a hitoe (unlined) kimono. Beautiful worn the traditional way but also makes an extremely sexy, slightly sheer robe. Very easy to hem if you wished to shorten it a little, no cutting required, simply fold the amount required up to the inside and loosely stitch in place. The moon is high enough to allow it to be shortened quite a bit.
  • This is an itsutsu mon (5 crests) kimono, the most formal of kimonos, and its mon are paulownia. 
  • Tiny white stitching often seen across the back of kuro tomesode kimonos is a traditional feature.
  • May have white shitsuke (loose 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

  • 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
