Kuniko’s Kimono Story (Part 2)


This is a homongi that was worn by my mother. She had it made to attend my graduation ceremony from junior high school, so it has good memories for me. My mother taught Japanese cookery. She worked really hard to send me to a private school.

This colour purple really suited her. When she was alive and well I chose to wear this kimono to a wedding ceremony. That made her really happy. As there are no people in the landscape on the kimono, you can use your imagination. The peaks of the waves are drawn really three dimensionally and I never get tired of looking at it.  I love this kimono, its so special.
