This listing is for a woman's Japanese summer kimono - called a yukata. These are unlined cotton robes usually worn to casual gatherings or for summer festivals. Yukata are also sometimes offered to guests in Japanese inns and hotels.

Yukata are popular these days as bath robes, beach or poolside cover ups, or for Japanese festivals or sushi parties anywhere in the world.

This yukata is a deep dark indigo blue with a bright and bold retro pattern of plum blossom. The white and yellow horizontal bands (with a faux ikat edging) bring more fun to the party. It reminds us of some of the patterns we've seen from the 1960s and 70s. Wouldn't it be lovely with a bright yellow obi?

We sometimes offer casual hanhaba (half-width) obi in our shop if you'd like something traditional but we also offer a simple cotton sash for $15 that can be added to your order by clicking the option above. We'll choose a color that goes with the yukata.

Yukata, like silk kimono, tend to be longer than expected - so we offer an option (above) to have it shortened to cocktail length (45") and include a simple cotton sash for $35.
