"Fireflies" Woman's Yukata Kimono

A yukata is a summer kimono, made in cotton and easy to care for - just pop it in the washer (gentle cycle). Japanese women wear them to summer festivals and close them using a colorful contrasting colored obi. See video below on how to put on a yukata in the traditional way.

Carribean blue background with a wonderful and somewhat unusual design of fireflies (hotaru in Japanese) - a symbol of summer in Japan. Collecting fireflies on a hot summer night has been a traditional pastime in Japan for centuries. The little black element is the firefly and the shaded purple is its radiated light. Slender green grasses seem to waver in the summer breeze. Light blemish on front right sleeve, see photo above.

If you'd like this yukata shortened to 45" (a standard robe length), we can do this for $25. Just choose the option above and allow up to two extra days for shipping. We machine-stitch a fold on the inside of the kimono at the waist to shorten the length. The fold flap is on the inside of the kimono, and the stitching from the sewn fold would be hidden under a belt when the kimono is worn. This is the traditional way of shortening a kimono, rather than hemming it at the bottom. We do not cut the fabric, so the kimono can be returned to its original length in the future.

These also make great robes, and can be worn with one of our simple sashes. We also sell Japanique Robes - vintage kimono with a shortened length and matching belt - great for lounging!
