Pretty Little Peacock - FOR SALE by Kurokami-Kanzashi
Pretty Little Peacock - FOR SALE
This is a VINTAGE Japanese little girl's miyamairi furisode. Miyamairi are formal children's kimono which are most often worn for coming of age ceremonies. This particular miyamairi features a beautiful peacock, pheasant and peony motif on kinsha silk.

I have inspected this kimono in detail, and there are a number of spots on the exterior as well as a seam separation where the kimono's ties attach to the collar.

MEASUREMENTS:
99cm - Long (Shoulder to Hem)
75cm - Arm span
32cm - Width across the back
90cm - Total width of skirt
58cm - Sleeve drop

SIZING:
If you are unsure of how to interpret the kimono's size it is important to know that the length (collar - hem) should be approximately 10cm longer to 10cm shorter than the wearer's overall height (longer is better). This is because the excess length will be folded up at the waist. Meanwhile, the skirt should wrap around the hips a full 1.5 times. The armspan should also reach wrist to wrist on the wearer. In this case, the kimono will ideally fit a child about 89cm (2'11") - 109cm (3'7") tall, with hips about 60cm (23.5") around. There is some give and take in these measurements though.

This piece is currently up for sale in my Etsy shop:  www.etsy.com/listing/220018634…

It's also up for auction on Ebay:  www.ebay.ca/itm/291364902908?s…

Pretty Little Peacock and Juban Set - FOR SALE by Kurokami-Kanzashi
Pretty Little Peacock and Juban Set - FOR SALE
This is a VINTAGE Japanese little girl's miyamairi furisode and juban set. Miyamairi are formal children's kimono which are most often worn for coming of age ceremonies. This kimono comes with a juban (under-kimono).

The outer kimono features a beautiful peacock, pheasant and peony motif on kinsha silk.

The juban appears is rinzu silk patterned with gold shimmering cranes and clouds.

I have inspected these kimono in detail, and there is some damage to the outer kimono. There are a number of spots on the exterior as well as a seam separation where the kimono's ties attach to the collar. The juban, however, is in excellent vintage condition with very little noticeable damage.

Cherry Sunset  - FOR SALE by Kurokami-Kanzashi
Cherry Sunset - FOR SALE
Here we have a pair of unworn Japanese zori (sandals) for sale. These women's zori feature bright, sunset coloured hanao on a wooden sole. The sole is made from authentic cherry wood from Akita prefecture (a specialty of that city).

These zori are in unworn condition.

MEASUREMENTS:
Length: 23.5cm (9.25")
Width: 7.5cm (3")
Heel: 4cm (1.5")

Please be advised that Japanese sandals are designed to be worn a centimeter or so shorter than the actual length of your foot. Basically, your heel is supposed to hang off the back a little bit. This is to keep the sandals from catching and pulling on the hem of your kimono when you walk. So even though these shoes are 23.5cm long, they would ideally fit someone who's feet are 24 - 25cm long (approximately size 7 - 8.5 in US women's footwear).

This piece is currently up for sale in my Etsy shop:  www.etsy.com/listing/220017300…

Painted Flowers - FOR SALE by Kurokami-Kanzashi
Painted Flowers - FOR SALE
Here I have for you a vintage Japanese fabric roll. It is enough to line one women's haori. Haori are essentially short jackets worn over top of one's kimono while outdoors. This bolt of fabric features a lovely hand painted pattern of bell flowers (kikyou) in a peachy orange colour.

This bolt is 100% silk.  I believe it is habbotai.

This bolt is vintage, so there may be a few imperfections on it.

MEASUREMENTS
Width: 36cm (14.25")
Length: 317cm (124.75")
