Up for sale is a beautiful kimono-style reversible robe I got back in 1997. I found it at a Japanese Matsuri Festival in Phoenix, Arizona and fell in love with the embroidered Dragon designs on both sides. It turned out to be one of those clothing items you buy and end up never wearing because it's like a work of art & you don't want to ruin it (especially with 2 large dogs!). The only time it was ever worn was when I tried it on at the festival and at home that same night (and for the pictures above), otherwise it hung in a closet covered in plastic until 2005 and then stored in a vacuum-seal bag until recently. Still looks as beautiful as they day I brought it home some 20-years ago!
One side is a satin Black finish with Blue sleeve cuffs, pocket cuffs, lapels and belt. It has a Gold & White embroidered Dragon and designs interlaced with Silver threading. The reverse side is a satin finish Blue with Black sleeve cuffs, pocket cuffs, lapels and belt and the Dragon & designs are a metallic White with Gold threading. Both sides have two very large deep pockets.
