Description A vintage Japanese silk Kuro Tomesode Kimono, circa 1960-80s. Kuro Tomesode is a dress for married woman for the most formal occasions, equivalent of the evening gowns in the west. It is overall black, decorated only with patterns of bright colors on the bottom. This kimono has three Mon family crests on the front and back shoulder. It is lined with white silk in its interior. On the front, it features exposed white stitches around neck and breast, a very subtle and elegant touch. The bottom part of the kimono is decorated with lavish woven design with embroidery accents that depicts a group of peasants among peonies and other blossoms along a flowing stream. Great contrast in the colors and attention to details. An very elegant textile for wall hanging or perhaps wearing.
