This beautiful japanese vintage kimono has a very unique fabric. Kasuri (絣) is a Japanese word for fabric that has been woven with fibers dyed specially to create patterns and images in the fabric. It is an ikat technique, the warp and weft threads are resist-dyed in specific patterns.
From the Meiji period (1868) till 1960, this type of fabric was particularly used for everyday kimonos, but today, there are less and less craftsmen that make them. Consequently this japanese vintage kimono is becoming more rare.
