Antique sayagata print kimono in black and blue
A lovely antique silk kimono with a fine printed dotty pattern of sayagata in blue and black.
This kimono is in excellent condition for its age and is a dark and striking dignified looking piece.
It measures 151 cm long, the width from the centre seam to the sleeve edge is 64 cm, and the sleeve drop is 47 cm.
This is a really lovely piece and super comfy as well.
• Sayagata: the swastika is often found as part of a repeating pattern. One common pattern, called sayagata in Japanese, is made of of interlocking manji/swastikas, left- and right-facing swastikas joined by lines. As the negative space between the lines has a distinctive shape, the sayagata pattern is sometimes called the “key fret” motif in English.
