Kimono is a work of art, handmade by the artisans who spend hours and days crafting the intricate embroidery stitch by stitch or hand-painting the patterns onto the fabric. Furthermore, the Japanese have a way of cherishing the changing facets of the four seasons. With the kimono, there are various designs and patterns to represent and appreciate each season of the year. Many of the designs also symbolize such well-wishes of longevity, prosperity, safety, and happiness. Since ancient times, the kimono has not only been a portrayal of beauty but also the bearer of people’s prayers and wishes.
Enjoying the styling of the hidden lining and undergarments is also a part of the unique kimono culture. The tiger, hawk, or Mt. Fuji often depicted on the lining of the men’s haori (kimono jacket) is another sight to behold.
