This is an uchikake robe (outer kimono gown) probably used as Kabuki stage costume. The bottom and the openings of sleeves are thickly padded with cotton stuffing. The design is large paulownia leaves and flowers. The exterior and liner are both thick cotton. This robe is old, and a little soiled but the fabrics still have not lost it’s strength.
It is an attractive display piece. One small tear (hole) in red liner in the back, some broken couching stitches.
48” (1.22m) wide x 5’6” (1.68m) long with 21” (53.3cm) long sleeves.
