Japanese Kimono Red Silver Embroidered Fans FlowersGo Back
Kimonos are traditional Japanese robes, gorgeously designed and flowing with color and character. They are the national dress of Japan. The kimono is a T-shaped, wrapped-front garment with square sleeves and a rectangular body, and is worn with the left side wrapped over the right side, unless the wearer is deceased. The kimono is traditionally worn with an obi, and is commonly worn with accessories such as zōri sandals and tabi socks.
Kimono are traditionally made from bolts of fabric known as tanmono, which are woven to a narrow width and long length. The width of the tanmono varies for men and women, and there are many different types of kimono for men, women and children. The type of kimono worn can also vary based on the wearer’s age, the formality of occasion and – less commonly – the wearer’s marital status. Though kimono are commonly worn only to formal events in the modern day, kimono can be worn to events of every formality.
