This kimono arrived today ^_^ I had been drooling over it for ages. I thought I'd deserve a treat and now it's mine! This one is a bit peculiar - it is a komon kimono but has one crest. Also the designs line up and match over seams so it's more formal than usual komon kimono.
According to John Marshall the pattern is shippou, a sort of shorthand for seven treasures.
The fabric of the kimono is beautiful, very light and shiny silk. The patterns are woven with urushi coated thread. I combined my kimono with a Taisho era chuya obi. The other side of the obi has stripes. Also my porcelain obidome is from Taisho era.
Yet another ensemble I hope to wear out someday ^_^
