'Furutta' Kimono

  • We named this 100% silk vintage Kimono 'Furutta', meaning different or eccentric, for its truly unusual design. We've never seen another one quite like this.

    However the 60's introduced a new trend in Kimono style and colours and this is a great example.

    Kimono makers have always had a knack for putting together seemingly disconnected colours and patterns and making them work. The colouring of this almost copper brown background with white, black, ochre and pale khaki looks as though there could have been an African influence - the lining colour is a duo of peach and lemon gelato.

    Wear as a long jacket, robe or as intended - wrapped with an Obi or or other traditional sash.

    Excellent condition - only very slight age marks on inner lining and watermark on inner sleeve.

     Note - Please Read before purchase:

    Kimonos are generally made, for wearing traditionally tied with an Obi sash, on smaller framed, not too tall bodies - however if worn as an open jacket there is generally enough room in the sleeve area and in length to be worn by several sizes larger and taller than originally intended. However there is no guarantee it will sit perfectly on your body shape. Let's call it freestyle!

    As we take every measure to ensure you are advised of the correct sizing prior to purchase - we ask you to please be aware that we don't refund for garments chosen in error. Please don't hesitate to contact us with any queries regarding dimensions before purchase.

    All vintage and antique kimono and haori were hand made. Therefore you may see some loose, temporary stitches around edges of sleeves, hems and collars on our kimonos. These stitches, called shitsuke ito, are kept in place to assist the valuable kimono in retaining its shape and alignment. In Japan the stitches are normally removed before wearing then restitched again after cleaning and before storage, for the same reasons as above. We like the look of authenticity they bring so feel free to retain them if you like, or remove them before wearing.
