Tsujishikamon/Exotic Florals: Chrysanthemum and Wisteria

Beautiful symetry and color gradation of the entire art piece accentuate its sensuality. The big fuki* that overlaps with kumihimo (braided cord) is characteristic of this piece. * Fuki refers to the section where the lining of the kimono is tailored to show at the sleeve and the hem.
