In Japanese, the word ‘furisode’ (振袖) means ‘swinging sleeves’. These kimono are the most formal rank for young girls and have the longest sleeves of all. Another aspect that sets them apart is that their designs are brighter and more colourful than standard kimono. Swinging long sleeves around was also said to get rid of demons and purify the area - giving luck and good health to everyone nearby. Furisode are perfect for weddings as well as seijinshiki (成人式) coming of age ceremony. This extravagant kimono in cobalt blue with big blocks of gold leafed floral and water patterns with gold embroidery depicting a kai awase shell matching game.
