Stunning deep purple 1930s houmongi kimono. Fabric is soft rinzu silk with silk lining.
Flower and fan pattern is beautifully dyed throughout the kimono. There´s discoloration on the lining but the outside fabric is in overall very good vintage condition, especially for its age.
The kimono will fit most sizes, it’s a bit long so you might need heels or a good pair of wedges if you are planning on wearing it outside. This one could also easily be hemmed without interfering with the pattern.
Obviously it’s a piece of art, and it’s up to you to experiment and make it your own!
Condition: Good vintage condition

Vintage clothing was sized differently than modern clothing, therefore we provide measurements to each listing. Please read this guide to get the measurements right.
We also provide an approximate modern size estimate (example: XS, S, M, L) in each listing, do keep in mind that these are just approximate and always go by measurements to be sure.
All measurements are taken across the garment laying flat. Which means you have to double them to get the circumference. Best way usually is to compare the flat measurements on a similar piece of clothing from your wardrobe.
Please keep in mind that some fabrics stretch out more than others. If a measurement is marked FREE , it means it’s open and wide.
If you have any questions regarding size never hesitate to contact us and we will do our best to help you out.
