Listed for your viewing is a super adorable cornflower blue komon kimono with red arabesque, sasa (bamboo leaf) and sakura (cherry blossom) patterns all over. I get the feeling of the outer fabric being much older than the actual kimono itself - late Meiji or early Taisho - with it being remade into a "house" kimono at a much later point.

This piece is in very good condition. The fabric is structurally sound, however it is a tiny kimono and would most likely be better suited for being re-purposed for use in crafts, clothing and kimono accessories (think, han'eri, hanao, tabi, etc!)

Due to the severe lack of storage room in my house (I truly am overrun with kimono - help!) - I am listing this below value to sell fast!

FLAWS
************************************************
- One of the sleeves has been pieced together (see 5th photo, 4th image).

- There is a very small spot of discolouration on the front left panel (see 5th photo, 1st image)

- There is an area where it looks like the fabric was bleached out in a small line - this may also have just been an accident with the original stencil process (see 5th photo, 2nd image).

- The lower lining has been repaired (see 5th photo, 3rd image).

PLEASE NOTE
************************************************
- Please be sure to read shop policies before purchasing.

- While I endeavour to show the most accurate colours, please understand that not only do monitors display colours differently, certain colours are difficult to photograph.

- All items sold as-is with the understanding they are vintage, used garments. I endeavour to identify as many of the blemishes as possible on garments, however, there may be a few that escape my notice. I will never knowingly obscure any major flaws.

- I've tried to quote actual shipping cost where possible. If shipping paid exceeds actual shipping cost by more than $2, I will refund the difference.
