Description
Woman's lined silk kimono with an overall design of a suburban landscape of curving tree-lined streets in black, light gray, orange, pink and white. The kimono is traditional constructed with a continuous length of fabric from the front hem over the shoulder to the back hem, therefore the design appears upside-down on the back.
