'Nene no Sensu' Kimono

  • The shimmering satin finish on this musk pink 'Nene's fans' vintage kimono feels incredibly luxurious to the touch. The bottom half of the silk Kimono is decorated with Jacquard fan motifs of varying sizes and there are tiny jacquard springtime raindrops covering most of the material. The lining is plain white silk.  

    At the top under the collar is a Paulonia flower inside a circle which is the Kamon (family crest) of those with the surname of Toyotomi. The original clan leader was a famous samurai lord who played an important part in Japanese history and was both popular and highly controversial throughout his life - he is known as one of the three unifiers of Japan. His wife was Nene. 

    In immaculate condition generally however there are a couple of barely noticeable squareish marks on the outside of the lower part of the kimono's back.

    This would make a stunning robe for the romantic, tied with a sash or hung in a a pretty bedroom.

    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.
