Inspired by the Japanese kimono, we took a few liberties with our Women’s Kimono Tech Shirt. We started with a foundation of traditional Japanese textile designs. We then added a beautiful chrysanthemum at the waist to symbolize rejuvenation and longevity. The peonies on the shoulder and hip represent nobility, respect and good fortune. So much easier to put on than a real kimono, (word is that they offer classes in Japan since it is so complicated), our Kimono kit is also much lighter, moisture-wicking and works great for sports! Beautiful, functional and unique!
