Yuzen Kimono representing view of the imperial court with clouds background - 片寄せ雲取御所解慶長
What makes this traditional kimono more beautiful than any other kimono, is the color of this fabric; light purple. Purple has always been the most noble color since ancient days in Japan. We call this color of the noble purple in a lighter shade “fuji iro”, from the flower of fuji (wisteria). Fuji iro is one of the most popular colors for traditional Japanese kimono; it can make a wearer look calm by its light tone, while maintaining the nobleness and the elegance of purple.
Someone wearing the traditional kimono in this light purple embodies the Japanese beauty itself, envied by all.
