Stack up everything

Before stacking up, fold all things neatly so as to take them easily.

The order of stacking up

Put everything in a shallow box or on a wrapping cloth “furoshiki“. 

From the top,

tabi socks, susoyoke petticoat, hadajuban underwear, towels/padding, karihimo string, nagajuban under garment + hane-eri collar + erishin interlining, munahimo string, datejime belt, furisode + kasane-eri collar koshihimo string Korin belt munahimo string datejime belt obiita board obi sash gojuhimo, band obi, makura pad (If you need it), obiage cloth, obijime cord

Be sure to…

  • The first thing you have to do is put tabi socks on.
  • Did you put the erishin interlining through the nagajuban’s collar? People often forget that.
  • Belts, bands, strings and a cord should be placed to take their centers easily.
  • Put clips aside. 
  • Place all items on the left in front of you.
  • This time, no obi pad is required.

 

Are you ready?

Okay! So let’s put on frisode!

Oops! Sorry, now I’m making and writing it. Please wait for a while.
