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. Although this is a mens juban it could also be worn by a woman.
These handpicked vintage pieces are imported directly from Japan. Sometimes they may exhibit slight signs of wear or very faint blemishes as part of their vintage nature, but overall are in excellent condition and suitable for wearing.
