  • Si l’on voulait traduire le mot kimono, on obtiendrait « quelque chose que l’on porte sur soi ». Ce vêtement est considéré aujourd’hui comme le vêtement traditionnel japonais, alors qu’autrefois, c’était l’habit que l’on portait tous les jours.

    Au VIIe siècle, le kimono faisait office de sous-vêtement. Les Japonais y ajoutaient alors un pantalon ou une jupe. A cette époque, les différentes classes sociales étaient très marquées, et cela se voyait notamment au travers de codes vestimentaires. La qualité des kimonos dépendait de la classe sociale.

    Le mot kimono fait son apparition au XIIIe siècle, et désigne alors le kosode : un vêtement aux manches étroites (par opposition aux osode, des vêtements aux manches longues). Les modèles gagnent en raffinement et le vêtement devient objet de luxe.

    Il est aujourd’hui réservé aux grandes occasions et reste onéreux pour qui veut l’acheter neuf.

  • Il est facile de confondre le kimono traditionnel avec le yukata japonais. Si ce sont tous les deux des vêtements traditionnels, ils présentent un certain nombre de différences.

    La plus grande d’entre elles se situe au niveau du tissu. Le kimono est conçu à partir d’un tissu en soie, souvent orné de dessins brochés en fil d’or et d’argent.

    Le yukata japonais est quant à lui fabriqué à parti de coton. En effet, il se destine à être porté dès qu’il commence à faire chaud. Le coton laisse respirer, est léger et absorbe l’humidité du corps.

    Sous le kimono traditionnel japonais, les Nippons portent un nagajuban, une doublure en soie ou en coton pour protéger le kimono de la sueur. Sous le yukata, jus des sous-vêtements !

  • Pour bien porter votre kimono, veillez à croiser le côté gauche sur le droit (l’inverse étant réservé aux personnes décédées !).

    Au Japon, les kimonos sont réservés aux grandes occasions, en raison du prix élevé d’achat. Ceci est dû aux fils d’or et d’argent qui composent le vêtement. Ces grandes occasions désignent par exemple des cérémonies, des événements traditionnels, le jour de sa remise de diplôme, de son mariage ou encore lors de la cérémonie du thé.

    Si vous voulez l’utiliser à la façon occidentale, portez-le comme un manteau ou une veste et laissez-le pendre librement sur vous.

  • Made in Japan vous propose votre yukata avec plusieurs motifs au choix : des vagues, des cigognes ou encore des chrysanthèmes. Vous retrouvez donc des motifs liés à la nature, thème cher aux Nippons et à nos maîtres artisans.

    Bon à savoir : dans la culture japonaise, le chrysanthème jaune symbolise le soleil et la lumière, et donc l’immortalité. Et dans tous les pays asiatiques, la fleur représente le symbole ultime du bonheur et de la bonne santé.

    Le thème de l’immortalité se retrouve d’ailleurs avec la cigogne puisque l’oiseau la symbolise. Elle représente aussi la longévité. Ceci est dû au fait que les Japonais pensent que l’animal peut atteindre un âge avancé.
