This finely brocaded silk panel was made long ago in Japan. It may once have been owned and worn by a Buddhist monk. Kesa, like this one, are ceremonial vestments pieced together from five, seven, nine, or more panels of cloth and were worn draped over a monk’s left shoulder. Some orders give their monks these beautiful garments when they are first ordained as a symbol of their sacred commitment.

“PAGODA RED was extremely supportive in helping to pull accessory options together for the Lake Forest Showhouse. After providing them with details and our vision on how we were looking to finish our space, Laurene helped curate options that made it easy for us to edit and finalize. It's also no surprise that the unique pieces we used in our showhouse space were some of the first to sell.”
