Description
 
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. Perfect for a summer festival or poolside.

This yukata features a pattern of white chrysanthemums with smaller pink mums behind them. The blossoms are floating along a field of little white and blue shibori dots interrupted by long wavy lines called tatewaki, which usually represent steam rising. Since the patterning is evident on both sides of the fabric (see 6th photo of inside) we suspect that the pattern was dyed with a stencil. So much work!

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 five 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!
