This beautiful Turquoise Kimono has extra long sleeve with an old Japanese poem and a young Japanese Princess. This is a very hard to find Kimono with long sleeves (28"- 29" long). A more formal and elegant look. A darker richer color than the picture. Translation of the poem is "I went out to the spring field and picked young greens for you and it snowed on my sleeves softly. Outside is still cold with snow but I will go and find a spring flower for you." The Kimono is made from 100% finely woven Japanese cotton. The beautiful material is called Cotton-Sateen, which is a softer than normal cotton and it gives the fabric a lustrous sheen. This authentic Kimono is made in Japan and includes a matching belt. A Kimono can be worn to Japanese festivals, special events, weddings, tea ceremony, and even around the house as an elegant robe.
