Uchikake (Japanese: 打掛) are formal, ornately decorated kimono that were originally worn by women in samurai families in 16th-century Japan. Centuries later, this garment was adopted as bridal wear. Since it is intended to be worn over another garment, like an overcoat, it is worn without an obi (sash).
