The exquisite Crane Swirl Red silk kimono shows a traditional Japanese scene of white cranes flying over a landscape of flower blossoms, against a shimmering red background.
Cranes are a common feature in Japanese art and origami, representing longevity and good fortune. This is a sumptuous kimono, and a very popular gift.
Enjoy the luxurious sensation of 100% silk. We recommend dry clean only for this delicate, high-quality fabric.
