Women's Kimono






Komon


Komon

Komon is a casual kimono with patterns all over that.
It's very popular as a street cloth (townwear) now.

It's worn by women for going out, casual parties, and so on.

"Ko" means "small", and "Mon" means "pattern".
But, even if it has a large pattern, stripe or check, it's called "Ko-Mon".



A komon that is having incredibly precise patterns,
and is made in Edo (present Tokyo), is called "Edo-Komon".
When you look at "Edo-Komon" from the distance, it seems having no-design.

It's distinguished from "Komon".
It's more formal than ordinary "Komon", it's almost same as Iro-muji.
If you put a family crest in the back, you can use it as a semi-formal.
