Do you know the estimated value of unused Japanese Kimonos currently just kept in drawers that may never be worn again?
It’s 40 trillion yen 💴 (£300 billion)!!! 👘 (according to Lifet Select ltd research).
It’s not so often but there are still some occasions to wear a kimono in Japan such as school graduations, weddings and the ‘coming of age ceremony’ (20years old) for example. They’re often worn at funerals too.
There are some complex meanings to each pattern, design, fabric and colours on each Kimono.
