A dynamically graphic kimono from the 20th century. The kimono is summer use so it is unlined (hitoe). Beautifully and skillfully hand-woven silk fabric is almost understated but it compensated with this wonderful wave design. It is very common to see water themes in summer kimonos which supposedly create visual "cooling effect." The kimono is in excellent condition. Ca. Early to Mid 1900s Body Length: Approximately 59" Sleeve to Sleeve: Approximately 50" Body Width: Approximately 24"
