* 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.
* Vintage yogi, sleeping padded kimono.
130cm x 147cm - 51 1/4" x 58"
It is made of beautiful kasuri cotton, which is comparatively thick and soft.
Its design is very unique and impressive.
It has some stains and discoloration, but as a whole it is in very good condition.
