Minako’s Kimono Story (Part 1)


I found this kimono had been sleeping as a tanmono (kimono rolled fabric) for years at my parents place. I brought it to Tokyo and tailored it my size. Apparently, my grandmother bought this but she could not wear it, and my mother also didn’t wear it. This suits my taste, so I was so happy when I found it. According to my mother, this kimono is also my grandmother’s taste, so I thought that taste-wise she and I share kimono style. It is a shame that it is too late to show her how I look in this kimono, but I can connect with her by wearing it. The colors are brownish, so I wear it in the autumn and winter.
