Kimonos are known as straight-lined, collared, and
long-sleeved garments. These clothes have different length models. Kimonos have
wide sleeves and cuffs and do not have any connectors such as a zipper or
button on the front. Instead, a belt can be used to connect the front parts.

with various colors and patterns. Kimono combinations can be used in

Kimonos, which have a unique style, are preferred
according to each individual's style. Therefore, individuals who want to adapt
kimonos to their style use the woodblock printing method to design
kimonos according to their individual preferences and make it a fun activity.
Woodblock printing, which is a unique method of
drawing and painting, is also known as a woodcut. This printing method
is done using a woodblock printing mold. It is possible to print unique figures on kimonos
using woodblock printing molds. Thus, it allows you to create your style while
your kimonos are blowing in the wind at the beach, working in the office, or
having a meal at a chic invitation. Individuals can transfer the desired image
onto the kimono with woodblock printing molds according to their preferences.
Creating a Kimono Design with Woodblock Printing Step
You can make your kimonos unique with woodblock
printing to suit your style. This way, your kimonos will have a beautiful
appearance wherever you wear them. For a kimono that will be worn at sea, shell
and fish-like figures can be preferred. For a stylish event, more simple and
modern figures can be preferred. For example, a kimono with small leaves
printed on it is a great option for a stylish event.
To create a successful woodblock print, a wide and
flat-bodied type of wood should be chosen. Those who want to draw small shapes
can choose small wooden materials. However, for those who want to print large
figures on the kimono, choosing a large tree trunk will be more correct for an
easy printing application. In addition, the tree trunk should be smooth.
After the figure is drawn, the areas where white
should remain when transferred onto the fabric should be carved using materials
specially designed for wood. This way, the areas where white is desired will be
lower. Then, special printing paints should be applied to the wooden printing
block using a roller.
After these steps, the transfer of the wooden printing
block onto the fabric of the kimono can be performed. The fabric should be
placed on the visual. Then, it should be rubbed with a wooden material and the
paint should be transferred nicely. The wooden printing block should have a
soft structure. Otherwise, transferring the lines onto the kimono fabric will
be quite difficult. For this reason, larger and wider images should be
preferred for creating a kimono design with a woodblock printing block.
