Harumi’s Kimono Story (Part 1)


Harumi – STORIES 着物物語

This first kimono that I want to introduce is a kimono with a woven design of red camellias on a black ground. It was a surprise present from my mother and grandmother, but it is not at all what I wanted. They had no idea that a child could wear a kimono with a pattern dyed on it as casual wear. Where I came from kimono had designs woven into them. I was grateful to them, so I wore the kimono and matching haori patiently until I was twenty years old. Then I realized that I liked feminine and gorgeously designed kimono, and that was what I really wanted to wear.
