Hand sewn meisen  銘仙 kimono. Meisen kimono became popular in the early 20th century when factories started taking silk meant to be discarded, due to imperfections, and would dye the silk threads before they were woven.  This gives the patterns a hazy edge, but also hides any imperfections in the silk, allowing for high quality, inexpensive garments, accessible to the everyday woman.
