A delightful and delicate pattern of Ume and Kiku cover this silk kimono. Ume, plum blossom is a favourite within Japan, it’s beauty and fragrance being reflected across art forms.  it is the first blossom of the year to bloom, and represents endurance and good fortune.  Kiku, the Chrysanthemum is the Flower of The Imperial House and is often used as an icon of Japan itself (it is the emblem used on Japanese passports).  It represents rejuvenation and longevity.

Backing the blooms are 'sensu' fans, used in traditional dance performances, and ‘kasumi’ which is a symbol of clouds or mist meaning high status.  

The design also features patterns 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. 

Some elements are highlighted in gold.

This vintage kimono was sourced from the Osaka area of Japan.  It is approximately 20-30 years old.
