Modern life overflows with the maturity of industrialized society. The ideal way of the consumer who makes [Yarikuri] is long lost. Now the theme of ecology is important. It is thought that we should review the lost custom, and improve the way we consume. Kimono, if it is seen from the point of “Let us not waste! [Mottainai] value”, has an excellent characteristic in recycling and reuse. The system that uses it well exists. Kimono returns to one cloth when the seams are removed. It was a merchant named Shikkai to have handled the system. The industrialization society put it at maturity then, I researched who Shikkai are in what situation and what role he plays. As a result, it is exposed to the crisis of the disappearance with the decline of the kimono culture though Shikkai has undergone a transfiguration with the transition of economy and industry of our country after the war. However, the idea and aspect of “Let us not waste! [Mottainai] value” run to the basic concept [Kurimawashi] of Shikkai, and peeling off and using the original value of kimono. In addition, it is thought that it is necessary to study the behavior patterns of the coordination of collecting knowledge over many topics and using it.
