Getting friends into kimono, what you need….

OK, well when a friend asks me to help with a kimono set, they normally think you just need the kimono and obi. So here is a list of what a girl needs for a average kimono ensemble.

1. Kimono (duh!)

Green Iromuji

2. Obi

Purple Nagoya Obi

3. Obiage

pale yellow obiage

4. Obijime

Obijime Set $5

5. Obi makura


6. Obi ita


7. Juban with haneri

8. Hadajuban (you can get away with not wearing this if your juban is synthetic)


9. Up to 5 koshi himo


10. 2 datejime


11. Eri Shin


For me Tabi and Geta/Zori are optional as quite often I wear boots.

This is what my average kimono ensemble entails. Start collecting!
