Japanese Kimono DesignsBook - 1991
The kimono is an acceptance of tradition which ties the wearer to more than nine centuries of Japanese culture, history and protocol. The enormous variations of kimono designs were the creative products of Japanese artists, originating in the imagination and experience of the wealth classes. Traditional designs are an integral part of the Japanese character, and though the kimono is no longer the basic dress, it still has an artistic and sociological significance to the Japanese people today.
