Product Description

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 it doesn’t crush intricately tied sash on the back.

When many Japanese women switched to western style clothes from kimono, kappogi became outdated.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 extra coverage to protect your precious kimono. The bottom of the frill will fall down around knees. It also has plenty of rooms around arms and torso. It 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 both sides. Stain resistant.
