Wonderful Waterfall Ro Silk Japanese Kimono - Wafuku 1
  • Something rather special, an exquisite ro silk kimono, with the most wonderful waterfall artwork. Textile art hand applied by Japanese artisans.  This kimono is a wearable work of art. It would also make a fabulous hanging display.
  • Ro is a beautiful, airy weave of silk, with a lightly banded appearance and beautifully soft. It is intended to make the textile cooler to wear in hot weather
  • Hitoe (unlined), to keep the wearer cooler
  • This kimono has been gently hand washed without the colour running. A gentle colour detergent was used, no rubbing, no soaking.
  • Made in and bought from 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
  • Made in and bought from Japan
  • **If shown with a sash or accessories, they are 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

Excellent - it has a tiny, faint rust mark on the front (see poto), which is barely noticeable.


Sleeve end to sleeve end 126cm
Sleeve seam to sleeve seam (yuki) 64cm

Wonderful Waterfall Ro Silk Kimono

SKU: wk1092
  • 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
