Kamishimo

The Kamishimo, was a two piece garment worn by the samurai classes during the Edo and Meiji periods. It consisted of a top with shoulder wing extensions, called the Katiginu or Kami and bottoms called Hakama with could be trouser-like (Umanori) or skirt-like (Andon).. The Kamishimo was often the required dress for ceremonial occassions and royal court appearances. There are of course Kamishimo reproductions made for Festivals, theatre players and film actors. From a textile point of view, they can be made from most fabrics, silk, cotton, hemp and the newer ones from polyester. We tend to sell mostly cotton and Japanese hemp or Asa Kamishimo, displaying family crests (Mon) and having komon, katazome dyed decoration, such as Same and Hailstorm patterns. These make wonderful items for display and are certainly a talking point as well as being of interest to the collector.
