|(n) fine pattern|
Tsukesage komon refers to komon with patterns right side up all over. For this to occur, the bolt has to be dyed specifically. In normal komon every other panel features the pattern upside down, or has patterns facing both ways in the bolt.
- Repeating pattern with a clearly discernible top and bottom
- All patterns are the right side up
- To distinguish from tsukesage: patterns are not placed in careful balance at the hem, shoulders, and sleeves but rather are repeated all over the kimono.
