Short Hakama Ko Kimono - A
  • A peachy pink hakama ko furisode kimono (called a shita kimono, also called called hakama-ue in Japanese, meaning above hakama). This kimonos is short because it is designed to be worn with hakama on top but, as you can see, is gorgeous on its own. It has lovely, deep ko furisode style sleeves (more information below about furisode sleeves. Here it is just displayed casually, in a contemporary way, with no fold-over tuck at the waist, and with a simple sash belt.
  • This can be worn as a kimono, a robe, a dress or a coat.
  • Synthetic textile. Hand washable. Wash by hand but you can spin excess water out in a washing machine but put it in a white pillowcase before putting in the machine, to ensure sleeves don't rip off in the machine. I use a bag clip to keep the pillowcase closed while in the washing machine.
  • Fully lined
  • Made in Japan
  • **If shown with a sash or accessories, they are not included; for display purposes only, to let you see it closed, however, all kimono require an obi or some sort of sash to hold them closed; these are always bought separately. Think of it like a skirt and blouse, you can't wear either on its own, you buy them separately and mix and match


Condition:
Excellent - unused deadstock (excess shop stock)

 

To judge fit on you...

Check height: Women can choose kimono that are longer than their height, as any excess material is then traditionally folded over at the waist (see below)

Check width: A kimono with a width that is at least 16” (40cm) greater than your hip size will fit perfectly, although if the width of the kimono is not at least 10” (25cm) greater than your hip size, your legs may be visible as you walk, there’s nothing wrong with that of course, but it’s not the traditional way

Sleeve length: Measure from centre back of neck, along shoulder and down the arm to the wrist, then double that and compare it with the sleeve end measurement to judge sleeve length

Measurements approximately:

Sleeve end to sleeve end 132cm
Sleeve seam to sleeve seam 63cm
Sleeve depth 75.4cm
Length 112cm

  • Kimono require a sash to hold them closed. This is always bought separately. Men usually wear a kaku obi with their kimono or, casually at home, a soft heko obi

    Sizing: Japanese clothing is usually of adjustable fit, being mostly wrap-over or tie-to-fit items, so most garments fit a range of sizes. Because of this (and only really knowing my own size anyway) I can't really advise anyone on the fit. Please judge fit from the measurements given. Check length given for the garment, then measure from base of back of your neck down to judge that length on you
    Also measure from centre back of neck, along shoulder and down the arm to the wrist, then double that and compare it with the sleeve end measurement to judge sleeve length

    Some of my garments have white stitching (shitsuke) round the outside edges to keep the edges flat during long periods of storage, these stitches just get pulled out before wearing the garment

    Cleaning: Be very cautious about washing kimonos. All cleaning is done entirely at your own risk, as is standard with all vintage garments and items. I would advise only dry cleaning

    Colour: Please be aware that different monitors display colour slightly differently. Therefore the colour in the photos and description is a guide only
