Japanese Vintage Kimono

In the past, the Japanese kimono was worn for ceremonial and formal occasions but also for everyday wear, because of this there are a variety of styles of kimono, all having their own distinct usage.

Uchikake- is an ornate wedding kimono, worn by the bride, it is worn over another kimono, the kakeshita. The Uchikake is worn open and has a padded hem so that it trails gracefully along the ground. The decoration on the Uchikake can be woven, embroidered or hand painted. The designs usually have symbollic meanings eg. cranes for happiness or pine boughs for wisdom with age.

Furisode- The Furisode is the formal kimono worn by unmarried ladies. The bridal furisode, or Hon Furisode, is the most colourful and again is richly embroidered or hand painted. Most young women wear a furisode kimono for the coming of Age Day ceremony.

Tomesode - The black tomesode or Kuro-tomesode is the most formal Tomesode for married ladies and Iro-tomesode can be worn by married or unmarried ladies for formal wear. In both cases the pattern is restricted to below the obi and there are usually five mons (family crests). The patterns can be Yuzen dyed and have parts richly embroidered.

Other kimono types include, the Houmongi, for semi formal occasions and for visiting and the kimono for everyday wear. Embroidery, Shibori (tie dye), Yuzen are all techniques used to decorate the fabric.
