  silk kimono

This beautiful silk kimono represents traditional Asian culture. The images have been hand-painted with an incredible amount of attention to detail. Kimonos similar to this one have been worn in the Asian culture for centuries, and are still being worn today. The design evokes common themes in Asian prints, depicting trees, pagodas, and mountains.
