1 About Kimonos
Kimono, jubans and haori are best kept folded for storage, rather than on a western style hanger for long periods, although this is entirely up to you. The Japanese have a specific and clever way of folding kimono that allows them to be opened up and worn without ironing every time, as the creases from the folds lie in such a way that they look smart. Folding instructions can be seen below. Haori, of course, do not have those extra front sections that give an overlapping front to a kimono, so, of course, only the narrow front edges of the haori fold back, they don't fold all the way out to the sides, as they are seen to do with kimono in the diagram below. Other than that, haori are folded the same way as kimono. See the video demonstration of kimono folding further down this page
