This listing is for an underkimono - called a "juban" in Japanese - which would be worn under a man's kimono. Remember, layering is quite important in kimono-wearing. Juban often feature designs that reflect the interests of their owner, but they are rarely seen in public since they are layered underneath a kimono. Just in inch or two of the over-collar is visible, though you may catch a glimpse of the sleeve edge at the wrist. Juban make great casual robes.

This juban is a smooth silk-cotton blend in earth tone colors, with a patterning that seems to include elements for a mythical tale, or perhaps a noh play. You'll see a noh mask, theatrical fans, a sake barrel and old-style sake cups, as well as rows of kanji lettering that, we think, tells a story.

The over-collar is black and the juban is lined in a muslin cotton that does have some discolorations (see photo). A sash is not included but can be added as an option when ordering.

Juban make great robes and cover ups, but watch the video below to see how to layer the juban with a kimono.
