☆ Japanese vintage kimono – Ōshima tsumugi checkered black red blue ☆

What is so awesome about this number is that the type of this kimono -tsumugi- is so traditional yet the design in black, red and blue checkered is so modern.

It is a simple and traditional yet modern looking piece which you can nicely combine with various type of obi belt styles.

This is Ōshima tsumugi, a traditional kimono from Kagoshima area. The history backs to even older than Nara period – year 710 and these are among the most expensive kimono.
A tsumugi kimono gets its typical look by dyeing the loose silk threads and then weaving them on the loom chair.

This is a “awase” (lined) silk kimono.

This kimono has no stains, just threads sticking out here and there – but we believe its a special weaving technique.
It has the production threads – shitsuke ito- still in. This means though being vintage this is most likely never worn. Please wear after you take out these threads carefully. (Please check close-ups).
