SHOOTING STARS KIMONO
Beautiful 1930s-40s Kimono Juban in very soft and fine crepe silk with a lovely drape. It has a shell pink background with light green and white stars.
A Juban is an under kimono worn to keep the main outer garment cleaner. A replacement collar of vintage 60s kimono fabric in green floral silk has been added. The original white cotton collar is still underneath, which is usual for a juban. New fabric pieces were traditionally added to the collar when the fabric was dirty. This meant that the whole garment did not have to be cleaned, just the collar
Fully lined in ivory silk

across back - 58.5cm/23in
