Sewing a kimono is called "WASAI."
It is a cutting and sewing method, what began when things were not abundant like now, conscious of the straight line so that you can use the cloth as many times as you like.
(When you cut the cloth into a curve, you cannnot reuse it.)

Sewing method of the cloth in WASAI is called "UNSHIN."
In my case I sew with my both hands and a left foot, sitting cross-legged on a tatami mat.
Now few people are doing this sewing method.
I want many people to know it as much as possible.
