Fragment of Edo kosode kimono whose sleeve openings (wrist parts) are small comparing with Osode. Kosode kimono was widely worn in Edo period and the style is adopted by modern kimono. The ground cloth is benibana (safflower) dyed figured silk that was very luxurious. Also, it has beautiful embroideries such as wisteria, wheels of court cow carriage, peony and so on. The dye techniques are: katazome (stencil-resist-dye) and shibori (tye-dye). Late Edo period (18th to mid 19th century) It is fragment of han-juban (short under kimono) which was a remake from kosode so that it has slits in the neck part and the front is open. In excellent condition except for benibana faded parts. 76cm x 66cm
