Kimono is the name for traditional Japanese clothing and it seems that in the 16th century it was already known to Europe by the name of kimono. Made from silk, cotton, wool and other materials, it is made of various weave and dyeing methods, and is loved mainly as formal wear. It looks similar, but what is worn in summer and is made from thin cotton is called yukata. There used to be many people wearing yukata as a pajama, but now colors and patterns have become more versatile, and not only Japanese but also foreign tourists wear it as a way of being trendy.
