SOLD-Miniature (22" | 55cm) 1960s Ro Silk Kurotomesode Silk Salesman's Sampler(5279)

April 06, 2017 Yoko Lewis

We came across an unusual item in picking for our bulk kimono packages in Japan. Mixed in with our usual shipment was this 22 inch | 55cm high ro silk kurotomesode, a black summer-wear formal kimono for women; it is hand-made to scale. These miniatures were used by kimono-makers and stores as display to show customers. We think this might be of interest to designers who might deconstruct to learn the pattern, to doll-makers or even to frame and for display. 

To see more details, pictures and order please visit the item on our website, 5279 HERE.
