Chikako’s Kimono Story (Part 3)

CHIKAKO’S STORY 3 着物物語3
This kimono was given to me by a friend. It is a furisode so I couldn’t normally use it. My friend thinks it is rather old. I think it could be used as a coat for a stage performance, for some kind of dance. The pawlonia and phoenix design is not unusual, but I think the fact the bird is completely white and unadorned is unusual.
この着物は友達からの頂き物です。振袖ですので普通には使えないのですが。友達は結構古いものだと思う、と言っていました。私は踊りの舞台でコートとして使えるかな、と思っています。桐と鳳凰の模様は特に珍しいものではありませんが、真っ白で装飾を施していないていないのは珍しいと思います。
