Cute vintage 1980s silk kimono robe in white semi-sheer ro silk with a purple pattern. 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 light weight and perfect for summer weather or warmer climates. Includes a simple satin ribbon sash. It is in very good condition, there are some scattered very faint yellow spots, see 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.
This particular kimono has a more formal feel to the fabric, it is not drapey and flowing.
Measurements are approximate, taken flat and then doubled where necessary.
