Day 308: Ever fold a real kimono?

Not an easy task ...

Many years ago, we were gifted with ...

 three exquisite traditional Japanese kimono.  

(*color distorted by flash, actually white)

A creamy white silk brocade ...

traditional tsuru wedding kimono.

Magnificent detail in embroidery.

A crimson red silk tsuru & ginko kimono.

Also with amazing detail.

And, a crimson & gold silk  kimono.

I apologize that my photographs don't do justice to the colors.

Or the tsuru, cherry blossom and chrysanthemum detail.

Treasures from Japan.
