The Kimono is a long-sleeved traditional Japanese garment made to be worn by women, men, and children. Kimonos come with many different patterns and colors and are commonly made from silk or cotton. At Tokai we carry both new and vintage Kimonos and matching accessories such as Obi, Zori, and Tabi socks. In Western cultures Kimono's have been adapted to be worn as a house robe - whether it's one of our flannel Kimonos for the colder seasons or a light Haori jacket for the fashion conscious. The fabrics from old Kimonos are often reformed into other items such as bags, pouches, or scarfs.
