A kappogi is a Japanese style apron, which is particularly made to be worn over kimono. The sleeves of a kappogi are baggy, in order to cover and protect kimono’s hanging sleeves. Torso area also has extra room so that intricately tied sash on the back won’t be damaged.
When many Japanese women switched to western style clothes from kimono, kappogi became outdated. But for a long time a kappogi was strongly associated with the image of mother in Japanese psyche. You might have seen a Japanese woman wearing a kappogi in a old movie.
Because a kappogi has a wider coverage than an apron, some people wear it for gardening or other activities that might soil the clothes otherwise.
This particular white kappogi is extra long size for tall individuals. It also provides extra coverage to protect your precious kimono. It has plenty of rooms around arms and torso, and can be worn over regular clothes or kimono. Neck and the back around the waist closures are to be tied for extra flexibility.
Square neck with cotton lace. Pockets on one side. Stain resistant.
