When I got married a long time ago, I bought some kimonos including mourning ones as trousseaus.
However, I shouldn't have bought any kimonos.

My husband is only child and his hometown is far away from mine. So, my parents had predicted that I would live there in the future.
My mother had been worried that I couldn't find someone who can have me put on a kimono in the new place. She then had recommended me to learn how to put on a kimono. I had followed her advice and I learned it for several years just after I got married.

Kimonos are expensive and they should be hung out to dry in the shade once a year. You can't wash formal kimonos at home.
It is not easy to take care of them.
Mourning kimonos used to be used when it was a woman's parents' or her husband's funeral. However, these days, few women wear a mourning kimono.
Even my mother-in-law didn't wear a mourning kimono when it was her husband's funeral although she has some.
To be honest, I don't want to put on a mourning kimono. Moreover, there are many belongings such as Obi. Carrying them is also not easy. It's really bothersome!

However, I think that I must put on a mourning kimono because I don't want to waste them and money.
On the other hand, I don't want to take out mourning kimonos because I feel ominous.
I finally dried both for summer and for winter in the shade after three years (I'm not sure), and I practiced to put on the kimono. I then put some moth balls on the kimonos before putting away.
It was a tough job.
I really regret that I had bought kimonos.

Can you give the kimono away?

Re: No title

Hi Always visiting.

I'm sorry but I can't. As for another formal kimono, I might wear it for someone's wedding celemony, maybe for my niece or so.

Hi Shiroi Tora.

Thank you very much for the corrections as always.
I was glad to learn the word 'project' in this situation.
