Wisteria Kimono

Wisteria Kimono

In later Victorian and Edwardian times, kimonos were very popular as robes in the West, and many kimono companies made pieces specifically for export to America and Europe. This lovely robe has delicate wisteria, one of my favorite (purple) flowers.

  1. I used to live in a house on a street lined with purple and white wisteria. They are some of my favourite flowers but I see them so rarely in the UK.
    I’m kimono crazy, this is absolutely stunning. Thank you for posting it! πŸ˜€
