this is a beautiful and delicate vintage silk kimono i picked up at a vintage clothing store in Tucson last spring.
it is old silk with silk embroidery
the workmanship is gorgeous and amazing
there is so much fine detail and i see something new every time i admire it.
if it weren't so delicate i would definitely wear it
i have it draped over an old mirror frame to hold it up and out
i love the waves and water depiction
the sleeve trim is just incredible
right now the kimono is living leaned up against these mirrors on a ledge by my front door
i need to find a different place for it to live because my front door is all glass and the light that shines through this south facing door is not good for the silk.
on a quest for another space large enough (fat chance),
