Very Good, there is a light mark back middle of the kimono, see photo. There is wear inside the back collar, see photo, this can be covered with a new collar over the old one (can included a piece of indigo for this). There is wear here and there which has worn a particular piece of the stripe out, see photos, but the fabric is still good and the kimono can still be worn.
This is a lovely old folk textile, a padded kimono in shima (striped) woven cotton, colour black/brown/grey. The kimono is lightly padded with cotton and lined with blue dyed cotton. Wonderful to wear or collect!
