Propaganda Kimono

Perhaps the most elegant of all the propaganda kimono, the luxurious black silk has abstracted vignettes of the Hinomaru flag, fighter planes and bombers, the crenellations of the Great Wall of China, and barbed wire on wood x-frames, woven into it with colored and gold thread.

This rich fabric appears to have been custom-made by a couture designer for a wealthy patron.
