A calm heart begins with creating a constantly relaxed physical state. We believe the Kimono can create the Shizentai unique to the Japanese. It creates a relaxed mind and body.
We are certain that the Kimono and Obi supported the everyday life of not only samurais but also every Japanese, and shaped the posture, movements, and conduct that is unique to Japanese which in turn has had a large effect on the Japanese attitude.
The Kimono is not only beautiful, but also relaxing, creating a Shizentai ( neutral, or natural posture ) and a sense of clam mind…..heart.
This Kimono is made with a string attached to the front of the Kimono, and is made so the front part does not open when wearing it. This way, you can take both hands away from the kimono and the front will not open while tying the obi
To tie an Obi is the problem for people who wear Kimono for the first time.
One of our recommendations is “Heko obi”. It is the easiest obi to tie in all Japanese traditional obis.
Heko obi is made from soft fabrics (100% cotton). We are able to tie it in a bow on the position of your pelvis.
It is the most casual obi and good for everyday-KIMONO.
