This kimono is made of a sturdy, nubby weave that resembles silk tsumugi, but is entirely synthetic. I bought it as a
kimono to practice kitsuke
and wear as a costume. (I worry too much to wear silk kimono as costumes!)
The solid red hakkake
(lower lining) is a nice touch
The stencil-dyed fans and arabesques look a bit like batik.
