Iki black skirt with pure silk wallet, created by a formal japanese kimono belonging to the late showa period (the showa is the period of japanese history that starts from 1926 until 1989). It is a unique piece handmade by our tailors coming from a kimono kurotomesode, a type of kimono much prayed that is worn for formal visits and weddings. There is a beautiful motif finely painted by hand and embellished with details decorated according to the valuable technique kinkoma. This embroidery technique is one of the most important japanese decorative styles and is characterized by the overlap of threads soaked in embossed gold that give reflections of light and depth to the motif. These wires cannot be sewn, so they are applied to the surface and then sewn using thin strands of silk. It depicts a wonderful traditional motif consisting of two cranes and the noshi tabanes.

The cranes (tsuru) in japan are considered natural heritage and symbolize longevity, fidelity, good luck and elegance. The crane is also a symbol tied to the new year and to the wedding: it is in fact a very recurring motif in the wedding kimono, as it is an animal that remains faithful all the life to its companion. According to a japanese custom, making 1000 paper cranes helps to fulfill an important desire, in fact very often there are necklaces with origami of crane outside the temples. The tabane noshi is one of the most cherished motifs of the japanese tradition and is a symbol of good omen also linked to the protection of the family. The decoration is very valuable and stands out for the use of the refined kinsai technique, characterised by the use of gold sheets applied on the fabric.

On the inner edge of the skirt is the signature (rakkan-) of the artist who made the painting (see last photo). It closes by simply passing the tape through the inner slot and wears a small size up to a medium/large. The inner lining, also in silk, is ivory-coloured.

It can be worn both in summer and in winter, from ceremony to more informal occasions. Changing the accessories you can easily change the look. It is a very important garment, elegant and precious, ideal to be worn for parties or for important occasions. It is available in one piece and the conditions are excellent.

Length: 78 cmto know where the length of the skirt will come from, take the measurements with a metre from waist up to 78 cm.
