A lovely vintagerinzusilk komonkimono with a profusion of traditional flowers including chrysanthemums on a background of swirling water motifs creating a striking all-over print.
This contemporary patterned komon (small print) design is printed on a polka dot rinzu silk which creates a delicate lustre and has an off-white silk lining with a vibrant orange silkhakkake(the inner cuff and hem of the lining). Rinzu is a silk damask fabric in which a subtle, repeat satin pattern is woven onto a matte background. The kimono is in excellent unmarked condition
Komon, literally ko (small) mon (pattern) are casual kimono worn for going out or casual gatherings that often have a small all-over print, but may also have stripes, checks or larger all over patterns.
