Vintage Japanese Kimono & Haori (Short Kimono)
Vintage Japanese Kimono
A Collection of Traditional and Modern Style Japanese Kimono and Haori (Short Kimono Jackets)
The kimono (きもの/着物) (lit., "thing to wear" – from the verb ki (着), "to wear (on the shoulders)" and the noun mono (物), "thing") is a traditional Japanese garment, and the national dress of Japan. It is a T-shaped, wrapped-front garment and is worn left over right.
Vintage Japanese Kimono do not come with belts. Traditionally they would be worn with an Obi but that is a separate garment (often heavily embroidered) and is quite tricky to put on alone. It is difficult to be accurate about ageing of some traditional kimono as they have been made the same way for decades.
Japanese Kimono became popular in the early 1900's appearing in the likes of Liberty of London as Japan opened to western trade
