Today I received the tatoshi that I ordered and I will be re-organizing/folding my kimono, obi, and haori into them.

I was wondering how everyone uses their tatoshi.

Do you use only Long or short? or both kinds?

And What do you put in each.

For instance:

Do you use long tatoshi for Kimono and Short ones for Haori?
Or do you use all short ones for everything?
Do you use them for Obi?

My kimonos and haori/michiyuki are all stored in long tatoshi, and my obi are in short tatoshi.  :)

I use medium Tatoshi for everything.

Apox sizes.
s = 35 cm x 55 cm
m = 35 cm x 64 cm
l = 35 cm x 83cm

Oh I didn't know that there was a 55cm size...

Then I have Large (83cm long) and Medium (64cm long).  My Haori fit perfectly in the Large size.  I haven't gotten to the kimono yet.

I have some of the large ones, but they do not fit the shelves I store my kimono on very well or in my travel bag.

I don't have everything in tatoshi anymore (too many things and for stuff I don't wear its too much hassle to pack & unpack them for classes, talks etc.) but I use the medium ones for everything really good (in silk) except fusode.  I put those in the longer ones.  

Wool kimono, yukata etc. don't get tatoshi.

Problem is, my chests of drawers aren't long enough for the longer size!  Will have to upgrade to something better.

BTW, the kind with tapes, rather than the old fashioned paper strings, never seem to last very long - the tapes pull through and then I have to repair them.  Don't know why.

are you going to have some of those in DC this weekend? I need some for kimono storage. I'm bad- I don't wrap anything in tatoshi, since nothing that I have bought has come in it!

I ended up with all the kimono and haori in the large size and obi in the medium size.  I have a few tatoshi left over, 1 large and 5 medium, so I'll need more large ones soon.  :D

Now I need to figure out where to put them.  I have a large bureau that could serve the purpose nicely, but I'd need to find a place for the stuff that's in there to go.  Come to think of it.....tatoshi would be something I could use for my other antique/vintage textiles.

I think a trip to IKEA is in order.  Wheee.

I didn't even know short tatoshi existed until I ordered a juban from a Japanese store a few weeks ago! :)  so, my juban is in there, my kimono are each in their own long tatoshi (i double up the furisode/juban sets) and my fukuro obi are in one tatoshi. for some reason, my on medium tatoshi really disagrees with being packed full of nagoya obi - i've lost all the ties off that one...  :(
