Boy's kimono called noshime (silk) made in Edo period, which is a name of weaving technique with warp kasuri (ikat) between the horizontal border. Noshime kimono was worn by samurai in Edo period and worn by No drama performers these days too. Another feature of this kimono is it has uneven weaving in the indigo part called shijira-ori which is worn by older people, so that this kimono might have been remade from the grandfather's. It has woven crest in the back. 19th century. Generally in good condition but has mended moth holes in the back and the light yellow part is a bit weak. 90cm x 103cm
