KimonoPossibly one of the most beautiful items of clothing; the kimono.Kimono by Tenshi-blues
It wasn't until the Meiji era in Japan that the word ki-mono was actually used to describe Japanese clothing and it simply means "thing to wear".
I've had a fascination for all eras of Japanese clothing for sometime, but didn't realise quite how popular and diverse an item it could be in the Artisan Crafts galleries on DeviantArt!
Here is a small selection of the goodies that can be found:

Japanese arts, especially woodblock prints from Edo period, |
kitsuke-art of wearing of kimonos are my favourite things.
So it`s my inspitation in creation own willow world, full of simplicity and subtlety. My works are tribute for this amazing heritage of old Karyukai.
Enchanted by the Japanese Bijinga art, I use values of washi paper and I follow the old masterpieces in my paper compositions recreating the floating world, "UKIYO-E".

old designs based on the aesthetic category "IKI"-related to the concept of simplicity, lightness and ellegance.
