Now let's look at the history of kimonos. During the Meiji Restoration (1868-1912) Japan was heavily influenced by international cultures. The government encouraged individuals to undertake Western clothing and habits. Government officers and military personnel were required by regulation to put on Western clothing for official functions. However during informal and private events, wearing traditional kimonos was still common practice. They were typically embroidered with the wearer's household crest, which identified his or her family background.

These traditional kimonos were usually straight-lined which provided many advantages. They were very comfortable to wear, easy to fold and were ideal for use in all weather. They could be worn in layers to supply warmth in winter, or made from breathable cloth similar to linen for the summer. These benefits helped kimonos become very popular everyday items in the wardrobes of all Japanese citizens.
