Century-Old Japanese Company Creates Modern ‘Outdoor’ Kimonos You Can Go Camping In
A century-old Kimono maker and an outdoors apparel manufacturer have teamed up to create some awesome-looking outdoor Kimono outfits that are ready to take on the upcoming chilly months in Japan.
With fall just a few months away, Kimono Yamato and camping supply firm Snow Peak have unveiled their joint project which combines the aesthetics of traditional kimono and the practicality and functionality of modern jackets.
To keep its wearer wrapped up warmly, these stylish outdoor Kimonos close with buttons and a clip belt instead of the traditional obi sash.
Made with Teijin Fibers’ specially developed material called Octa, the kimonos have advanced features such as excellent breathability and heat retention.
Aside from being incredibly lightweight, the garments are also water-resistant and dry rapidly.
The features are perfect for kimono aficionados who love hiking or camping.
