KIMONO BASICS: The Finished Look

The Finished Look

The finished look: The parts of the kimono that can be seen from the front are the white collar of the nagajuban under-kimono, the obiage silk sash that covers the obi-makuro cushion supporting the taiko obi bow in back, the obi, and the obi-jime cord that holds the obi together once it has been tied.

Nagoya Obi
Nagoya obi 名古屋帯: The Nagoya obi is much easier to wear than the more formal Fukuro obi. Its is shorter in length, less heavy, and has some folds pre-sewn in. From the back it can be seen to be different from the Fukuro obi because it only is long enough for one fold of the taiko (太鼓) bow. It is named after the place where it was invented at the turn of the century.

Nagajuban Image 2
Nagajuban 長襦袢: The nagajuban is a necessary under-garment for a kimono, the white collar of which is visible above the collar of the kimono. To wear the nagajuban it is necessary to have a koshi-himo (腰紐) cord to tie it shut, which is then covered with a thin inner obi, called a date-jime (伊達締), to keep its shape.
