Bold 'ume' blossom adorn this kimono. Ume, the Plum Blossom is a very popular symbol on fabrics. It is a favourite within the range of Japanese designs: it’s beauty and fragrance has been reflected in many poems. It is the first of the year to bloom, and therefore represents endurance. It became a symbol of good fortune, as is used for New Year decorations.
The fabric is a silk woven with a pattern of 'tsuyushiba ', a repeating pattern of crescent shaped motifs which symbolise Dew Drops on Grass. It means freshness and so is most commonly found on summer kimono.
This vintage kimono was sourced from the Osaka area of Japan. It is approximately 30 years old.
Handmade by self help groups in Cambodia.
