Tonight I laid out my entire kimono collection minus the obijime and one yukata and hanhaba. I started collecting in early 2006 with just one kimono.

Here is the list of everything I have:

18 obijime

2 pair of zori

5 pair of geta

1 pair of woven  slippers

5 obi age

2 uchiwa fans

6 regular fans

3 set of stretch tabi

1 wallet

1 yukata bag

1 disassembled obi

5 juban

1 slip

11 obi

2 haori

1 michiyuki

8 kimono

4 yukata

1 uchikake

various dressing items

It was nice to see if all laid out, gave me a good idea of what I have, what I don’t and what I need.  Plus it was a good opportunity to reorganize eveything.

  1. Wow, I think that if I laid everything that I have out, I’d go crazy because then I’d have to put it all back lol. 😛 Very nice collection!

      It wasn’t so bad really, I just didn’t unfold anything! Took me about an hour total to lay everything out and then put it away again. It was kind of satisfying in a weird way.
