Framed Japanese Fisherman Festival Kimono with Shibori and Mon Design

$ 5,800
  • Description
    A Japanese Fisherman's Festival Kimono circa late 19th to early 20th century Meiji period. Made from indigo dyed cotton with thin inner padding and lining, the kimono appears to fit a teen boy due to its size. The lower part of the main body features Shibori (free-hand resistant dye) motifs of lobsters in the ocean. Similar designs are also on the back of the sleeves. There are three white Hawk Feather Takaha Mons (family crests) on the upper back of the kimono that identify the owner of the garment.
    The kimono was worn during fisherman's festival for parading to celebrate good harvest at sea. It is presented hanging on a black lacquer rod in a large wood shadow box frame with linen backing. The size of the kimono is 38" by 44" as shown.
