* WOOL AND SILK DOUNUKI KIMONO

Japan, late Edo (circa 1850), 125x138cm.


This is an eye-catching dounuki kimono, the inmost part of a two-layered kimono set.
Main body is red wool, lining is orange silk, and highlights are made of thin crepe silk displaying a typical Edo pattern.

There are a few condition issues, as silk lining is partially faded and stained and crepe silk has become weak in places with small tears showing, but this kimono carries such a strong visual impact that the rest is easily forgotten.


A slick and bold statement of Japanese textile art, worth owning just for the pleasure of watching at it from time to time….
