    I'm not suggesting this, it's just an FYI but I had a roommate years ago from Japan and she told me that most kimonos, even the special occasion ones, were washable BUT the process she decsribed sounded incredibly tedious. First the kimono had to be dismantled (that would explain all the the hand stitching since multiple removal of machine stitching would stress the fabric).
    Then the pieces were hand washed individually and the kimono was mostly reassembled with hand stitching.

    Imagine all that work!

    Your Kimono is lovely I would just leave it as is.
