In the highly original design of our Enchanted Crane silk kimono, copper-and-gold Japanese chrysanthemums stand out from a shimmering black background, with white cranes gliding overhead. Cranes are a common feature in Japanese art and origami, representing longevity and good fortune. A gorgeous kimono, and a popular gift idea.
Enjoy the luxurious sensation of 100% silk. We recommend dry clean only for this high-quality, delicate fabric.
