This is a lovely semi formal kimono in slate blue, rinzu (damask) silk. The wonderful design at the hem, of trees, is fine stitched hand embroidery, very high quality. There is one hand stitched gold Mon centre back at the neck, the Hanabashi (Flowery Diamond Mon). The lower lining is mauve silk and the upper is red silk. The sleeves are lined with white silk. Wonderful collector's item!
