Kimono Questions & Answers

Myths & Misconceptions About Japanese Kimono

Ohio Kimono began with a lecture and presentation about Japanese kimono in a tea room in 2009. Since then we have made it our mission to help educate anyone who wants to know about kimono. There is a lot of inaccurate information about kimono, and we work hard to debunk these misconceptions. Over the years we have had the privilege of helping many people with their journey through discovering Japanese kimono and the development of their kitsuke. We have observed that there are many common questions about kimono that are often asked of us, and so we have compiled a quick Q&A to better help people with their own kimono research. This information is our professional opinion. Feel free to contact us with kimono questions, or if you need help selecting which kimono to buy.
