Women's Kimono






Meisen


Meisen

Meisen is a kind of Tsumugi (woven kimono), it's a daily cloth of kimono.

It's worn by women in casual situation or indoor.

It's woven more minutely than usual Tsumugi.
It has daring patterns and some of them has Western or satirical motifs.

Recently, it is not produced so much.
You only can find it as an antique kimono.



Meisen was all the rage everywhere as an easy kimono
in Meiji period [1868-1912] to before WW2.

But after WW2, Wool Kimono has taken the place of Meisen.
