Antique Japanese Silk Kimono Flying Cranes Juban

Bright and decorative, this vintage silk juban (under kimono garment) is filled with large yuzen dyed flying cranes and blossoms on a lovely red ground. Flying cranes symbolize longevity and good tidings. Both sleeves have been shortened, with the extra material sewn up into the bottom of each sleeve making them thicker. Juban is the undergarment worn under a kimono. This juban has lightweight crepe silk with a collar made of both white cotton and silk. The cotton part of the collar (on the front) has a number of age spots (not noticed when the juban is closed, could be replaced or covered with silk collar). Inside, it appears to have been replaced with a white cotton fabric, except for the sleeve linings (the silk with the flying cranes on red ground).

Condition: excellent outer silk with only a typical age spot or two (see above regarding the area of the cotton lapel); the inner white lining has an aged patina. Size: 47” across the top; 46” top to bottom. Sleeve: W-12” x L-19”. Such superior textile artwork would be a wonderful addition to your kimono collection; also adding a lovely touch to home décor.

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.
