A kimono consists of a number of elements. These elements include Nagajuban which has an inner layer. The garment is made up of silk or polyester fiber. If you go for synthetic version, it can be washed easily. The colored belt which is worn around the outer layer of the garment is called Obi. You will find embroidered brocade in the belt, and the length of the part will be 2 meters.

Obiage is the piece of cloth which is made with silk crepe. It will be tied around the torso, and it is tied underneath the Obi. To hold the decorative knot together, Obijime is used. Cotton socks which are worn with sandals are called Tabi. The decorative clogs which are worn with the kimono are called Zori. There are many accessories which can be purchased as per your style and satisfaction. You can also use traditional jewelry and various forms of protective layers to make the most of the dress.
