kimono definition and meaning

What is a "kimono"?

A kimono is a traditional Japanese garment worn by both men and women. It is a long, T-shaped robe with wide sleeves and a rectangular shape, and it is typically made from silk or cotton fabric. Kimonos are often worn on special occasions or ceremonies, and their designs vary depending on the wearer's age, gender, and social status. They are usually adorned with beautiful patterns, colors, and embroidery that represent different meanings and symbolism. The way a kimono is worn is also significant, with specific ways to fold, tie and accessorize it depending on the occasion and the wearer's gender. The kimono is an important symbol of Japanese culture and is revered for its exquisite craftsmanship and beauty.
