KIMONO STORY

The kimono is a traditional Japanese costume.  Now that lifestyles have changed,

it is no longer worn every day, but only on special occasions such as weddings, funerals, coming-of-age ceremonies, glamorous parties, dinners, tea ceremonies, and so on.

There are different types of kimono, and each has its own dress code.
The main types are as follows:

TYPE OF KIMONO

Black Tomesode (Kuro Tomesode)

It is the premier dress for the celebration with a hem pattern on a black kimono. The pattern is only on the hem line, but it is seamlessly connected, and high painting skills are required. Beautiful dyed patterns and embroidery create gorgeousness on a black background, which is the color of formal wear.

Furisode

It is also used as a wedding costume. The pattern is drawn throughout

and continues like a single picture.

Houmongi

Houmongi can be worn at various occasions such as weddings, parties, and tea parties, regardless of whether they are married or unmarried. The handle can be attached to the hem, right sleeve, and left chest.

The hem pattern is drawn so that the patterns are connected.

Tsukesage

The pattern is dyed as it is, and then tailored. It is considered to be a lighter dress than a Houmongi.
