Floral Print Chirimen Silk Kimono

A vintage circa 1970s Japanese fine silk Kimono robe. It's made from woven Chirimen silk and has a vibrant all-over floral print. Chirimen fabric is a thick, heavy silk crepe. This weaving technique was developed in Japan over 500 years ago. Chirimen fabric drapes beautifully, and it is difficult to crease. Therefore it is very popular for making kimonos. The robe is fully lined and has a peach toned color gradient to the lower hem.
