Kimono Kitsuke Accessories
The Art Of Wearing Japanese Kimono
Contrary to popular belief most Japanese kimono are not held on by an obi, but rather an assortment of unseen accessories. Traditional Kimono require a wide range of dressing accessories to make their look come together just right in a traditional and even an alternative fashion. With the proper assortment of accessories, most kimono will last the crisp and fashionable look so desired by many. The most common kimono accessory is called a koshihimo, which actually hold authentic kimono on the body. We have in stock a full range of kitsuke dressing accessories for Japanese kimono of all types as well as obi accessories as well. Some of our selection includes korin belts, and eri shin which are used with the kimono collar. Other kimono accessories made for ideal gifts for the kimono lover in your life such as kimono shawls, obidome, and tenugui. Accessories for juban are also in stock such as datejime and han-eri. Included in our kimono accessories are educational books dedicated to Japanese topics such as Geisha, and how traditional Japanese kimono are worn.

Due to variations in monitor color settings we can not 100% guarantee the colors of our products. Most goods in our online store are gently used, unless stated as being brand new.
Decorative Collars For Juban
Haneri are decorative collars that are sewn onto juban by any gender. When a juban is worn under a Japanese kimono in a traditional style the haneri collar is seen under the kimono. Typically the haneri is interchangeable and may be changed to better accommodate the style and formality of the authentic kimono worn. These decorative collars can be made in a wide variety of styles and from many different kinds of fabric. When sewn onto the collar of a juban the haneri creates a pocket that the collar stiffener known as an erishin may be attached to. It is considered improper to wear a juban under a Japanese kimono without a haneri.
