Throughout the Edo Period in Japan (1603 – 1868) the kimono excelled as the preferred fashion of Japanese women and rose to enjoy widespread popularity across social classes. Much like modern-day fashion magazines, this facsimile of a rare sample book which compiled kimono patterns, was widely accessible in this period and features hundreds of different designs.
