Woman’s Ikat Silk Kimono
This bold kimono has large ikat patterns in champagne gold on a rich purple background, with red accents peeking out from the sleeves and hem. The subtle sheen of the silk heightens the richness of the simple pattern. These bold, modern looks were especially popular before and after WWII. We think this kimono dates to post-war because of the sleeve length, which is shorter than pre-war kimonos (see TAJ127). Condition is excellent. These modern pieces are especially beautiful displayed on a wall, but this one could also be worn.
Size: 57 in. h x 48.5 in. w across shoulders.
