Why We Love It
The hand-painted scene on this gorgeous cream-colored vintage Japanese kimono will capture your imagination. Like a blue-ink sumi-e painting, it pans over the deep forest and snow-covered mountains.
The kamon (crest) on the nape is known as tsuta-mon, and represents ivy. It is similar to the crest of the Tokugawa shoguns, aoi-mon, and so became (and remains) popular among the common people who were forbidden from using aoi-mon.
