Kimono (2) - Silk - Flowers - Japan - Shōwa period (1926-1989)
Fair condition, see description - 0×160×130 cm

2 Japanese kimonos of the Showa era. Exterior in good condition. These delicate kimonos are difficult to protect from Japanese moisture, the motifs have some spots of Japanese kabi mould. See photos, they were dyed by their last owner a year ago and this is the material that is preserved.
The technique of elaboration and style of the two is very different, with a photo of 120 x magnifications we can see the dyeing of the fibres is perfect. One is done by hand with floral motifs and the other has fibres that are dyed and subsequently woven.
They are very light and comfortable to wear.

Enjoy.
