Vintage Silk Kimono Robe / Blue and White Floral
Vintage 1940s kimono robe in royal blue-purple Ro silk with a white floral leaf pattern. Ro silk is woven by twisting and skipping some threads, creating an open striped effect in the weave, and giving it a smooth gauze like quality to the fabric. Not lined, it is perfect for summer weather. It comes with simple ribbon sash. It is in very good condition, there are a few small spots, see the last photo.
Please note: This kimono is 100% pure silk. Ro weaving creates a fabric that is more slick on the surface and feels different, more like a chiffon or organza gauze. It does not feel like what you may think of as traditional silk.
