Kimonos are ancient Japanese robes, but they are still popular in Japan today. These vintage women's Furisode and Kakeshita style kimonos were traditional formal attire worn by young unmarried women. Imported from Japan each silk kimono features intricate oriental scenery and floral patterns which acted as indications of social status and personal identity. The customary butterfly sleeves are weighted with a touch of padding at the hem and again along the bottom to ensure the piece trails slightly and lies properly. Authentic and charming, each kimono is a piece of living art and rich history.
