This vintage 1920s silk Juban kimono has a bright red-orange and ivory waves print. Not lined and very slightly sheer, it is perfect for warmer climates. The kimono has a cotton muslin lapel and includes a satin ribbon sash. In very good to excellent condition, there are scattered tiny spots on the cotton lapel and one or two very faint marks hidden in the print, see last photo.
Note this is 100% silk and it is a type of weave called Ro. It is made by twisting alternating threads until the fabric develops skipped rows in the weaving. This method gives the finished fabric both a very light and airy, semi-sheer quality and a very smooth almost slick surface. It feels different than what you may think of as traditional silk.
