Girl’s Kimono
Silk
Stenciled warps (meisen), occasional supplementary wefts of metallic wrapped thread

This kimono is decorated with wooden spools wound with thread. The motif is feminine, and the rich red color is for young, unmarried women.

The supplementary threads add an extra touch to the centers of some of the flowers.

See the April 16 entry for actual wooden spools wound with thread.
