A beautiful silk Kimono made between 1920-1940, in Japan with intricate motifs of a flowering season. Many kimono motifs are seasonal and denote the season in which the kimono can be worn; others, such as the combination of pine, plum and bamboo - known as the Three Friends of Winter - are auspicious, and some (like floral patterns on this Kimono) can be worn to formal occasions in any season.

The kimono (着, ki), and the noun "thing" (物, mono) is a traditional Japanese garment and the national dress of Japan. The kimono is traditionally worn with an obi and is commonly worn with accessories such as zōri sandals and tabi socks.

The first instances of kimono-like garments in Japan were traditional Chinese clothing introduced to Japan via Chinese envoys in the Kofun period, with immigration between the two countries and envoys to the Tang dynasty court leading to Chinese styles of dress, appearance and culture becoming extremely popular in Japanese court society. The Imperial Japanese court quickly adopted Chinese styles of dress and clothing.

The fabrics that kimono are made from are classified in two categories within Japan. Gofuku (呉服) is the term used to indicate silk kimono fabrics and Cotton and hemp fabrics are referred to generally as futomono (太物).
