Kimono History

Originally, the word "kimono," translated to “the thing worn.” 

Kimono was the Japanese word for clothing, dating back to one thousand years ago. 


Nowadays, kimono refers specifically to traditional Japanese clothing. This traditional apparel is worn for special occasions such as weddings, funerals and tea ceremonies. 


 Kimonos are popular for many reasons, mainly their versatility. Heavy silk kimonos can be worn in the fall and winter. Light linen and cotton kimonos, known as Yukuta, can be worn during summer.

Usually, male kimonos are made of dark colors such as black, dark blues, greens and browns.
