Mika’s Story 2

I fell in love at first sight and bought this kimono ten years ago as a roll of cloth. It looks like a maiko’s kimono or a kabuki costume. It was komon tannmono. But I asked to tailor it to close the image of the costume: with long sleeves and rounded sleeve corners after asking the advice of the shop’s staff. I love this pattern, and I can see the good craftsmanship in this suri-yuzen technique, in spite of the fact that mass-printed kimono are increasing. I usually do not wear this color in my regular clothing, but I like it in kimono. It looks very good on Japanese skin color.
