What is Meisen?

Meisen, the so-called antique kimono, is a plain weave silk fabric that was extremely popular from the Taisho era to the early Showa era as fashionable everyday wear. Its unique colors and bold patterns still fascinate many people today. The characteristic of weaving is the technique called kasuri, in which the boundaries are blurred by intentionally shifting the colors of the warp and weft threads.
