Mitsuyo’s Kimono Story (Part 3)


STORY 3 着物物語 3
This tsumugi was from my grandmother’s collection which was split up when she died. My sister and other relatives took the other kimono, so I just have this one. It was actually woven by one of my grandmother’s relatives. I have had it lengthened and re-dyed and also put in a new lining but I will probably never wear it, because it is still too short and I can’t make the fold in the middle. I don’t like to wear it without that. Kimono and boots style does not suit me.
