Made in Japan: New denim kimono from Ibara city by Aokihifuku

The Japanese company Aokihifuku presented its new denim kimonos (pure blue, white hemp pattern, brown & green camouflage…) for men & women in Tokyo city during Ibara Denim Fair 2017 (finished yesterday), hosted by Tottori Okayama Shimbashi-kan “antenna shop”. Discussing with the staff, our French manager noted 3 big advantages of denim kimono over traditional kimono: (1) cheaper, (2) significantly lower maintenance cost as you can wash a denim kimono in a washing machine, and (3) clothing easy to produce in big sizes. On the right side of the photo, the Japanese salesman wears a denim kimono great for everyday life:
