White Kappogi (Thigh Length)

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When many Japanese women switched to western style clothes from kimono, kappogi became outdated.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.

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 white kappogi 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.
