This kimono features a collection of Ume and Momiji. 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. Momiji, maple leaves symbolise autumn. Japanese traditionally admire and revere autumnal leaves just as they celebrate blossom in the spring. They often appear together on summer kimono fabrics.
You will also see Ryuusu; this wandering stream is a traditional pattern, usually linking other design motifs
The fabric is a silk, with a pattern of Nami, waves, woven into the fabric giving it a textured finish. 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.
