Crane Brocade Uchikake Kimono

by Vintage


Crane Uchikake

The uchikake - usually made over 1.8m or 6 feet long - is the most expensive part of a formal kimono, often costing over ten thousand dollars due to its intricacies, worn by brides or Kabuki performers. This special kimono is most commonly made in brocaded silk, many with intricate embroideries depicting auspicious symbols such as cranes and phoenixes, as well as flowers and pine trees. 

This vintage version has been shortened and repurposed for everyday use, while retaining the balance of its intricate crane patterns.
