天宝工 TianBaoGong Peacock Kimono

Before diverting into style transfer, I posted some pictures of this flower-decorated kimono top. Here's another with a rather different design. Like the first, I bought it from Unicorn. It was longer, but to my non-Chinese eyes, that made it look like a dressing gown. So Unicorn shortened it for me by folding up the excess material into a hem, and sewed on a popper to close it at the waist. The result is a decorative summer top, with colouring nicely matching the Linaria growing on the wall.

Unlike with some of the clothes I've shown, I'm pretty sure that the manufacturers of this one are still going. Searching for the Chinese characters in the name, aided by Purple Culture's mouse-written Chinese input program, I found this site: https://tbg1688.1688.com/. The page mentions the Linhai Yujie Garment Embroidery Factory, and that 天宝工 or TianBaoGong is its brand. Judging by the photographs, Linhai Yujie Garment Embroidery make a lot of designs. This is one, and shows a kimono very similar to mine as it was before being shortened. Part of Tian Bao Gong web page, showing a similar kimono
