The Kimono – Craft, Usage and Meaning

Explanations about a Japanese Tradition

Just as with Karate, Ikebana or Calligraphy, wearing a Kimono correctly aims for perfection. Even though the traditional Japanese attire has been replaced by western clothes on the biggest part, there is an international community of Kimono lovers, which is dedicated to hold this tradition alive. There is a lot of sensibility needed to wear Kimono. It shows in selection the right garment and accessories, which follows tons of rules, and likewise the accurate donning of them, which needs years of practice. As a kimono enthusiast myself, with an affection for visual explanations and digital media, I developed a website which introduces interested people to this widely reticulate topic in an easily understandable way, illustrated with infographics.
