Tetsuya – black Kimono for kids with a wonderful design
This long vintage silk Kimono is handmade in Japan and is richly decorated with various traditional Japanese designs in bright colors with gold and silver accents. Note the beautiful design on the back which is printed from sleeve to sleeve, with a traditional Kabuto (Samurai helmet) in the middle. The Kimono is suitable for boys or girls aged 5 to 10, depending on the size of the child. The length of the mannequin is 112 cm. If in doubt, feel free to contact me. This Kimono is fully lined, it comes with a white silk Juban (inner Kimono) which is also fully lined and has extra silk sleeves in a light green color. The long straps can be tied either on the outside or inside through the open sleeves.
The Kimono set is in perfect condition, it looks unworn. There are only some stains on the inner green sleeves due to long storage, which cannot be seen when worn. This Kimono is also beautiful to hang on your wall as a colorful showpiece from Japan. Boys wear these colorful Kimonos during the traditional Japanese holiday Shichi-Go-San, more info at the bottom of this text. Tetsuya is a Japanese boy name meaning ‘wise man or philosopher’.

Each autumn on November 15th, families with young children celebrate a tradition known as Shichi-Go-San, which literally means “seven-five-three”. Japanese families visit a shrine or temple with their three, seven or five year olds to pray and give thanks for a child’s health and happiness. On this festive day children wear traditional Kimono attire; girls of 3 wear a Kimono and Hifu vest, girls of 7 wear a Kimono and Obi belt, and boys of 5 wear Hakama trousers with a Kimono. Prices for a complete children’s Kimono outfit can go up to more than 2000 euros. Some parents rather choose to rent their child’s Kimono attire at a Kimono shop for this special day.
