Furisode is sewed such as flower, bird and landscape by skills of Tegaki Yuuzen. Furthermore, add to sprinkle gold and embroidery in order to care about their spirits. One of the reason why furisode is worn by maiden comes from sex establishment of dancer in the early Edo era. When the dancers shake her sleeve, this means to show affection to men or when they grab her sleeve, this means to show pity, and these actions come to be stylish among maidens, that’s why the culture is established that furisode is for mandens. Furisode has effectiveness to keep away from evil and cleanse from action to shake sleeves. Furisode is worn in wedding party and coming of age ceremony because they have to cleanse at turning point. In summary, Japanese think that furisode has an effect on both to keep away from evil and to attract good fortune. 

振袖には手描友禅の技法で四季の草花や鳥獣、風景などが描かれています。さらに、金箔や刺繍を施したりと、品格を重んじた華美な柄付けになっています。振袖が今のように未婚女性の着物となった事の1つに、江戸初期(約400年前)の踊り子の風俗が上げられます。これは、袖を振ると愛情を示す、袖に縋る〔すがる〕と哀れみを請う、などといったもので、それを未婚の娘達が真似をして大流行したため、振袖は未婚女性の着物という習慣が出来上がったと言われます。また、袖を振るという仕草から、厄払い・清めの儀式に通じるとも考えられていました。結婚式や成人の日などに振袖を着用するのは、人生の門出に身を清めるという意味を持つようです。このように昔から振袖は人との縁・魂を呼び寄せ、厄払い・お清めに通じると考えられていました。
