Just had to share!!!

If you know me you are aware that I have a certain fascination with kimonos… My friend Nancy from Sault Ste. Marie forwarded the following link to me:
https://soranews24.com/2021/07/30/country-kimono-project-completes-set-of-over-200-designs-for-every-nation-at-tokyo-olympics【pics】/

Here is the message she sent along with it:

“As part of the Olympics, there was a project to create many kimonos each  to represent different countries .
There is a bit of an article at the beginning to briefly explain the project.

Many of the kimonos are shown is this article.
Very interesting what each country created.”

Thank you, Nancy! This was very exciting to read. I hope you all enjoy this article as much as I did! Anna

    I read this a few days ago and found it incredibly fascinating. It was interesting to see how they designed the kimonos according to some striking element of the country
