Vintage Blue Stars Summer Silk Kimono Robe
Vintage 1940s kimono robe in blue semi-sheer Ro silk with an ivory star print. Ro silk is woven by twisting and skipping some threads, creating an open striped effect in the weave, and giving it a chiffon gauze like quality to the fabric. Not lined, it is perfect for summer weather. It comes with a handmade sash. It is in very good condition, a couple scattered marks, one small hole on the sleeve edge. See last photo.
Please note: This kimono is 100% silk. Ro weaving creates a fabric that is more slick on the surface and feels different, more like a gauze. It does not feel like what you may think of as traditional silk.
