The Kimono

"Typically made from silk, kimonos are the traditional dress of men and women in Japan, although kimonos are often worn only for special occasions these days.

Kimonos are made from long pieces of fabric, usually sewn by hand along straight seams, with a collar attached to give a clean shape around the neck."
