[Women] Japanese Kimono

Japanese kimonos are considered to be more formal than yukata kimonos. They are worn for both casual and formal occasions. Gorgeous kimonos are good for ornamental purposes, too.

The Japanese kimono is likened to "wearable art" since dozens of artisans' techniques are used in one kimono. These traditional techniques and designs are breathtakingly beautiful and it is hard to find words to describe them.

We buy most of our Japanese kimonos from kimono auctions where only a limited number of professional kimono buyers can participate. Please enjoy wearing the kimono and appreciate the artisans' techniques.
