A bicycle made for kimono

By The Kimono Company on 10/07/2014

A bicycle has been developed in Japan specifically for kimono wearers.

A Kyoto-based company is marketing its Koto LX-20 bike to ladies in kimonos: its ultra-low frame allows the rider to mount and dismount easily, while the almost standing position minimises knee movement and therefore prevents creasing of the kimono. The kimono bike comes in blue, white or purple.
