    This is a traditional Japanese Kimono dyed (Yuzen) handkerchief.
    Yuzen is a traditional industrial art object of Kyoto and Kaga (Ishikawa Prefecture). It is dyeing technique devised in the Edo period by Yuzensai Miyazaki. Only a traditional craftsman can make these.
    The size is about 44cm. This hankie does not have a seal tag attached.
    Thanks so much for looking.

    Does anyone know a source for these in America?
