Chikako – Problems

When I started to wear kimono on a regular basis, I began to find many things annoying. I didn’t like the long collar stiffeners, or long nagajuban. So I have made my own designs. My nagajuban is a two part one. It is very convenient and the skirt is a pull-on skirt. I also wear a lot of polyester because I can just throw polyester kimono in the washing machine, which is very convenient.
I hate the way people just throw away kimono that are passed on to them because they don’t know how to use them and don’t understand what they mean. I want young Japanese people to really understand the importance of kimono for us Japanese.
