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.

Age: Taisho: 1912-1926.
Condition: Excellent outside; inner lining has several pulled threads.
Size: 49” across the top; 58” top to bottom. Sleeve: W-12” x L-20”.
