Han-Eri Juban Collars

When wearing a juban under a Japanese kimono, only a hint of the sleeves and the collar are visible. To protect the juban from the natural oils on a person's skin and makeup a han-eri is added to the collar. A han-eri is a decorative piece of fabric that is seen under the kimono collar along the neck. Han-eri are meant to be interchangeable and require no advanced sewing skills to add to a juban.
