This tsumugi silk summer kimono displays a flying goose against a storm-cloud backdrop. Measuring 59 inches (150 cm) across the shoulders and 58 inches (147 cm) in height, it underwent alterations, likely in the 1930s or 40s, shortening the sleeves and adding white cotton patches in the seating area and neck. The original longer sleeves have been revealed by removing the alterations. Tsumugi, woven from leftover silkworm cocoon floss, feels akin to high-quality handmade linen and is highly esteemed in Japan despite its modest origin. Its slubs result from silk spinning, initially stiff due to starch but softening with wear and washing. The tsumugi creation involves collecting broken silk threads, degumming, spinning with sesame oil, dyeing, and weaving. This may be a creation of Ohara Koson, a renowned Japanese artist whose style resembles the artwork on this kimono, coinciding with its creation period.
