Bold Black Silk Chinese Robe or Kimono with Colorful Embroidery - 18 Birds, Flowers, and More
This bold black silk robe is strikingly gorgeous and very suitable to be worn as a special occasion stunner or with jeans as a casual eye-catcher. How gorgeous this would be with a coordinated shell under it, worn open over a sexy pair of slacks and stiletto heels! The perfect spring/summer cover-up or the star of a red-carpet event.
The detail photos really show off the all-over embroidery. The embroidery features birds, spider chrysanthemums, asters and lots of leafy vines. There are 18 (!!!) birds. All is satin stitched and all hand-done. It is in superb condition and has been dry cleaned. No signs of wear. No odors and no loose seams.
