Kimono Colors by Month

Post  AnaIkimaru on Wed Aug 25, 2010 6:24 pm

I recently stumbled upon a page listing kimono colors by month. It's used in reference for the making of season-specific temari balls, but it could be used for kimono coordination too:

January Pine: sprout green and deep purple
February Redblossom plum: crimson and purple
March Peach: peach and khaki
April Cherry: white and burgundy
May Orange Flower: deadleaf yellow and purple
June Artemesia: sprout green and yellow
July Lily: red and deadleaf yellow
August Cicada wing: cedar bark and sky blue
September Aster: lavender and burgundy
October Bush Clover: rose and slate blue
November Maple: vermilion and grey-green
December Chrysanthemum: lavender and deep blue

They post Liza Dalby as a reference as well (and y'all know she is one of my favorite authors)!

Here is the site:
