Item Details and Description:

  • Fabric History/Pedigree:   Pieces received from traditional Japanese kimono cleaner/reconstructor called Arai-Hari -- see an excellent explanation of traditional Arai Hari by textile expert John Marshall,by click-pushing HERE.

  • Fabric Description: While this seems like nagajuban fabric at first glance, the feel of the fabric is more of a  light-medium weight silk, thicker than nagajuban, similar to regular woman's outer kimono fabric weight; 1960's fabric piece in red throughout with interwoven designs  of large peonies with what looks like ground fog or cloud motifs; interwoven design areas have a slight sheen; nice drape.

  • Condition:  Excellent.
