021 : A Kimono

21Yuko Kuroda

It is just recently that I am able to take a good look at this kimono with fondness. During when I was training as a manager for a musician who played traditonal Japanese music, we stayed in a household of the musician’s acquaintance. It was as it used to be in old times to be in offered meals and lodging in return of providing entertaiment. Feeling nervous and insecure as I was, the wife gave me this antique kimono which she brought along from her hometown. It was aged and color faded. There were moth holes here and there but I was attracted to its light texture and graceful appeal. This piece instantly brings back those sesitive yet rich moments of my experience.
