Why We Love It
The rich terracotta red of this vintage silk kimono immediately brings to mind the colors of the fall foliage. This provides the ideal stage for the iconic Japanese maple, whose leaves float across the kimono design. This means this kimono would be an ideal outfit for events during the late summer and throughout the fall.
The silk is woven with a subtle dot-like pattern, adding to the luxurious feel of the fabric
The design was hand-drawn onto the raw silk fabric using noshi paste – made from crushed rice – which was then dyed, leaving the pasted parts untouched. The details were then painted in by hand.
