beautifully in 5minutes
Bringing the original, beautiful silhouette of the kimono
Into the everyday
150 years ago, people across Japan wore kimono as a part of their daily lives. Today, kimono are considered a type of formal dress in Japanese culture, worn on special occasions, and they are now worn by few people on an everyday basis.
- Beautiful as they are, kimono also come with a few challenges:
- Even for many grown women, it can be difficult to make the beautiful, origami-like structure of a kimono fit to the non-rigid shape of their bodies, and many instead opt to pay a kimono dresser to assist them, which can be quite expensive.
- Aside from cotton summer kimono (yukata), many kimono are made of silk and cannot be washed at home, making for expensive dry cleaning fees.
- Kimono need to be folded and stored in a particular way, which may be difficult to accomodate in your current lifestyle.
With WASOMI.3D Kimono®, you can bypass these challenges.

Kimono, the traditional clothing of Japan, reverently and beautifully wrap the bodies of the women who wear them, much like a beautiful single flower emerging from a thin vase.
The feminine grace and allure that surrounds a woman dressed in a kimono is incredibly beautiful, but subtle differences in how the kimono drapes at the nape of the neck and at the chest can greatly change the impression it leaves, so practice is required to wear kimono properly.
In addition, kimono require not only special techniques to wear, but they also need to be cared for at specialty cleaning shops and stored in special kimono chests, so opportunities to wear them are dwindling even for the Japanese.
We want to preserve the beautiful traditions of Japan. We want to create an environment in which even those who live overseas can properly wear kimono. It was with these desires that the "perfectly fit three-dimensionally tailored" WASOMI.3D Kimono® was developed over the course of 10 years.
Popular in the summer, yukata (cotton kimono) was originally nightwear, but nowadays it's considered a summertime kimono. To answer that demand, we also developed a sleeveless, one piece under-kimono.
Because kimono are difficult for the wearer herself to see, as a garment that can be considered a kind of thoughtful presentation made for an onlooker, we believe kimono truly exemplify, "a delicate and noble aesthetic that uniquely Japanese."
With 1) minimal baggage requirements, 2) time saving qualities, 3) a beautiful presentation when worn, 4) no loss of shape, and 5) no need for special care—all so that you can easily wear kimono, even to parties, in Japan or abroad—we encourage you to give WASOMI.3D Kimono® a try.
