1970s Vintage Black Kimono Tomesode / Bamboo Embroidery
This is a lovely vintage formal tomesode kimono made of black silk crepe with an embroidered bamboo pattern. It is lined in ivory raw silk and comes with an obi sash that I have handmade from vintage kimono rayon with an ikat floral weave. It is in very good condition and shows a slight fade just above the embroidery and a little discoloration around the crests, there is some discoloration to the lining which is not visible when wearing. See bottom two images of last photo.
