Japanese-patterned hijabs to go with Kimonos: Yumeyakata accommodates Muslim guests visiting Japan
- Jan 31, 2019
Starting this February, Kyoto Kimono Rental Yumeyakata will be giving its Muslim customers the option to rent Japanese-patterned hijabs to go along with their kimono.
Kimono Rental Yumeyakata has been providing several services to make rental experience more pleasant for its Muslim customers including prayer rooms and showing customers to Halal restaurants. In order to further accommodate to customers’ wishes and give them more options to mix and match patterns, Yumeyakata has decided to introduce Japanese-patterned hijabs made from leftover kimono fabric.
After many discussions with Muslim staff, Yumeyakata was able to come up with around 20 Japanese-style designs which include cherry blossom, yukiwa (lit. “snow ring” or a pattern of snowflake crystals) and many more to go along with each season. In addition to the current patterns and as preparation for the summer, the rental service is also planning on expanding its designs to around 50 by adding various elements such as lace.
Lastly, as a special limited-time only campaign to celebrate the start of this new rental service, Yumeyakata is making the hijabs available for only 300 yen (normally 500 yen). Now, stylish and fashionable Muslim ladies can further enjoy coordinating with different colors and patterns!
