Kimono

 

the traditional Japanese costume, worn by men and women. It is a straight cut robe, which closes on the right and is secured by a sash (obi). Broad sleeves (sode) hang loosely. Kimonos worn by women are distinguished by a very wide sash and long sleeves, which are cut in one piece with the rest of the gown. There are evening, home, everyday, street, and ceremonial types of kimonos. Each type is made from a different material and has a distinctive cut.
