Vintage Japanese Silk Kimono Woven Temple Pagodas

This lovely lightweight silk shows a woven traditional garden landscape on temple grounds with intricate details woven in light blue-gray, on a violet-blue ground. Swirling water flows under bridges and around rocks, bamboo, pine and willow trees with five story pagodas standing out with their tall spires. This kimono is lined with raw silk (top 2/3), sleeves lined with ‘benibani’ red silk; the bottom one-third of the lining is light violet-gray crepe silk.

Condition: excellent outside fabric; lining has a few small age spots and “thin” areas, no holes. Size: 48” across the top; 58” top to bottom. Sleeve: W-12” x L-21”.

Textile arts have played an important role in traditional Japan for more than one thousand years. Master artisans created these one-of-a kind treasures that were highly valued in their day and are now highly collectible. For centuries, Japanese style of garments evolved to the modern day kimono. Japanese rulers dictated strict dress codes for many centuries. An individual’s rank, class, gender, age and marital status determined the kimono’s material type, the colors, and patterns that someone could wear.

Condition: Excellent outside fabric; lining has a few small age spots and “thin” areas, no holes.
Size: 48” across the top; 58” top to bottom. Sleeve: W-12” x L-21”.
