A vintage mens silkjubanwith a beautiful handpainted view of Mt Fuji set in a landscape with pine trees and deer.
Mt Fuji regularly appears in Japanese art, especially since the Edo period when Tokyo became the capital and travellers along the tokkaido became familiar with views of the mountain. Deer (shika) are considered to be symbols of longevity. This100% silk juban with silk lining is in excellent condition and would make a great present.
In contrast to womens kimono, mens kimonos are typically in subdued, darker colours with subtle patterns and textures, however thejuban, worn as a secondary layer under the kimono is often richly patterned or may have a hand-painted design.
