The kimono is a traditional Japanese garment made of colourful silk. The kimono is T-shaped, straight-lined robes worn with the hem falling to the ankle, with attached collars and long, wide sleeves. The kimono is wrapped around the body.

 

 

Why THH-Tokyo use Kimono?

Kimonos are very unique and beautiful. It is at the center of japanese culture but it is fading away from modern society. Kimono is not an easy garment to wear so it is used less and less nowadays. Unused, they take up space in houses and the precious fabrics deteriorate. Making Kimono silk takes effort and time, it is often sewn by hand. But japaneses now seldom get opportunity to wear kimono.

This is why I started THH-Tokyo: to mix traditional and modern culture, transform old, beautiful kimono into contemporary clothing.
