Our ladies' kimonos and yukatas are made especially for us in Japan. The prints are mostly time-honoured classic designs.
These gowns are made in various lengths, and we refer to them using the usual Japanese description; Kimono (normally ankle length), Yukata (normally ankle length), Happi Coat (calf length) and Hanten (knee length). We also use the word Kimono as a generic description of the style of garment.
In Japan, the Yukata is a casual, lightweight garment, normally made in cotton. Originally conceived as a garment to wear to and from the bath house, in our estimation, the Yukata is a practical choice for a bathrobe or dressing gown. Our kimonos, happi coats and hantens are made in similar fabrics and can perform the same function. All are machine washable.
The cut of our standard kimonos, yukatas and happi coats is suitable for sizes S to XL. A yukata is correctly worn with the left hand side over the right hand side (for both men and women) and fastened with a belt at the waist. All our kimonos and yukatas are delivered with a simple tie belt, but if you would like a more complete Japanese look, we can supply a plain Obi belt too. Please refer to the description of each garment for details.
