This is a beautiful silk kimono that was bought by a world traveller during the 1960s - I don’t think that she ever wore it as it is very crisp. The kimono is still in its original plastic bag which is printed with “Murai & Co. Shinmonzen St. Kyoto. Japan.” I haven’t been able to find anything on the retailer, but Shinmonzen St. is now known for its antiques shops. The silk is in a cream white tone and is printed with a design of fruit on branches - I think that the fruit may be persimmons, which are very popular in Japan. The label reads “100% Silk Made in Japan” and still retains the string that probably held the price ticket.
Sizing: This silk kimono should fit a medium size to a large size - please rely on the following exterior measurements for fit, taking the style of the silk kimono into account (compare measurements with a similar kimono that you presently own or to your own body measurements, taking the cut of the garment into account):
Shoulders: 54” across the top including the sleeve tops
Sleeves: 13” long from shoulder/sleeve seam
Bust: 52” around, taken under the arms, with a normal overlap
Waist: Meant to be cinched with the sash belt
Overall length: 53”, measured flat
Condition: As mentioned, this silk kimono looks unused, still has original folds and was well stored over the years. I guess that this lady bought it more as a souvenir and never got around to using it. The original bag for this silk kimono, however, is torn, and starting to become brittle due to its age.
This is a lovely quality for the silk kimono - striking pattern, very unusual to find an unused piece like this!
