A delightful and delicate pattern of Ume and Noshi cover this silk kimono. 

Ume, plum blossom is a favourite within Japan, it’s beauty and fragrance being reflected across art forms.  it is the first blossom of the year to bloom, and represents endurance and good fortune. Noshi are strips of ribbon, tied and given as good luck charms: this follows from and old fishermen’s tradition of giving strips of tied abalone as talisman when venturing out to sea. 

Gold painted details highlight the pattern, adding an extra dimension. 

The pattern is also printed on a rinzu silk kimono: a kind of damask silk which has motifs woven into it’s surface, for extra lustre and texture.  This pattern is ‘Nami’, waves.
