Unusual Hakama

Hi, Jon. I have just such a hakama, satiny ivory at the top with self-coloured ties, shading gradually to black at the bottom, with very fine shiny vertical stripes. I have been told that it sounds like a "wedding-hakama" which makes it a man's garment, but I DON'T CARE 'cos it's beautiful! The interesting thing is that while it looks like a hakama but is effectively a skirt. I bought it at Kyoto Handicraft Centre about a year ago, in their 2nd-hand/Antique Kimono section, and they have a Website, so you might want to contact them. Good Luck !
