100 Days, 100 Obi Project - Part 1
If you have never heard of Chayatsuji Kimono (茶屋辻着物, teahouse landscape) allow us to introduce you to a delightful source of knowledge about kimono dressing, with a wonderful sense of classical taste for traditional Japanese culture. The woman who is the powerhouse and brains behind Chayatsuji Kimono is Youandi, a young Dutch woman. Through her kimono dressing style, she expresses her own creativity and delights in learning more about kimono and sharing it with others. For years Chayatsu Kimono has been a staple of the international community that celebrated Japanese kimono online. Typically her blog and online tutorial videos are packed full of helpful tips and tricks for wearing your own kimono while gently encouraging the viewer to explore their own love of kimono. On July 1st she posted the first of what would be many photos of her 100 Days, 100 Obi Project. The objective is fairly simple, to post 100 days worth of kimono and obi combinations. Previous projects of hers include seasonal challenges and instructional videos to help demonstrate kimono dressing techniques.
If you are looking for a delightful Facebook page enrich your social media feed we highly recommend following Chayatsuji Kimono on Facebook. Her youtube channel includes fun videos such as kimono unboxings, and more helpful instructional videos which include topics such as the formality and coordination of an iromuji, and even unique male obi types such as the Ronin Musubi Variation.

Below are 3 from her project, and below each photos if is in her own writing insight and information about each kimono set. Most of these kimono coordinations observe a more traditional sense of style. In the coming weeks, you can expect us to feature additional Days from her project in our kimono blog. Truthfully every coordination posted through the project is worthy of praise which made a selection of our top 20 favorite kimono sets that much more difficult. All the same, we picked out our favorite 20 kimono coordinations and will be sharing them here with her permission.
