Excellent for the age, a few tiny specks on some beige squares, see photos, reverse has light smudging, see photos.
This is a lovely Buddhist Priest's Kesa made from two designs of woven silk fabric. The pattern in the squares is bamboo which looks very like calligraphy strokes and the surrounding fabric is flying chidori with snow and waves. The reverse fabric is silk rayon in white. Wonderful collector's item!
