Hashi is Japanese for ‘bridge’. This design was inspired by the shape of a beautiful red bridge at a temple in Osaka. It features one large pocket accessed by a top zipper, and a zipped pocket on the side. Designed with a base panel, so the pouch will stand up.
This kimono is covered in bright and bold ‘botan' flowers. Botan, peonies, are known as the King of Flowers in Japan where they represent longevity and steadfastness.
The pattern is printed on a rinzu silk, a damask silk woven with a mottled pattern, to give extra texture to the kimono fabric. The design is further enhanced by gold printed areas.
This vintage kimono was sourced from the Osaka area of Japan. It is approximately 20-30 years old.
Handmade by self help groups in Cambodia.
