Awase is a lined kimono, exclusively worn between October and May (from Autumn to Spring in Japan). A kimono without liner is called hitoe, which means "single cloth". It is exclusively worn from June to September, the summer season in Japan.
Komon is an informal kimono whose pattern repeats throughout the piece and often incorporates vertical stripes. Originally used as casual clothing, it is nowadays very rare since, with the westernization of clothing in Japan and the disuse of kimonos as a day-to-day wear, tailors have virtually ceased to produce it.
In ancient times, reddish colors were generated by akane (rubia akane) or benibana (safflower).
