Today’s かっこいい lesson is about the basic parts of the (women’s) kimono. ♡(˃͈ દ ˂͈ ༶ )
✿ Nagajuban collar - Nagajuban is an inner garment that is worn under the kimono like an inner robe. The only part that can be seen from the outside is its collar, which is commonly white. Sometimes, a detachable (usually decorated) collar called haneri is sewn onto the nagajuban collar for variety and style~ ^^
✿ Tomoeri - the outer, protective collar of the kimono.
✿ Ohashori - a neatly-folded flap of excess kimono fabric as a result of adjusting the length of the kimono to one’s height.
✿ Obi - a sash that secures and holds the kimono together. It is tied at the back in a number of different artful ways.
✿ Obi-age - another sash-like part tucked into/above the obi that helps to secure it.
✿ Obi-jime - is a belt or cord tied around the obi to help secure it in place
✿ Obi-dome - a decorative accessory that is fastened into the obijime.
✿ Sode - sleeve
✿ Tamoto - sleeve pouch (usually seen in furisode)
