Lots of hustle and bustle as of late. Hurrying to pack everything and move in 2 days total. Had to pack up all my kimono last night. Sad state of affairs. I'm hoping to start a new project though. I have been a devout follower of this blog.
The Year In Kimono - 着物の一年
So much so, that I'm hoping to do something similar once I get moved in. I already wear them as much as possible. What I've also learned from her writing(Eco friendly), is that kimono do not get washed as much as regular clothing. Due to all the layers underneath, it stays relatively tidy. I just have to worry about keeping the outside clean. If I need to, I do have a couple non silk ones I can easily wash and get a bit dirty. But what a way to keep energy costs down in a new house! Right?
Well, here's the collection as it stands. I'm fine with the variety now, but I do wish I had more obi. They tend to extend the wearability of kimono and offer more coordinations.
