'Chiisai Hako' Yukata

  • This handsome 'little boxes' Yukata (summer kimono) in dark indigo and white vintage cotton is specifically light weight due to Kyoto's very hot and humid summers - making it an excellent dressing gown or bathrobe in the warmer months.

    Taking into account its age, this piece is in very good condition apart from a few small spots of rust coloured stainage on the back of the yukata at the left hand side seam. It's barely noticeable and we think it gives character through its history - let's call it wabi sabi...

    Adding to the allure is the the name of the previous owner, hand-stitched in red inside the collar in Japanese characters.

    We are so drawn to this geometric pattern, rarely seen in modern day yukata, that if we had a spare wall we know where this baby would end up.

    Note - Please Read before purchase:

    Vintage Yukata are generally made, for wearing traditionally tied with a sash, on smaller framed, not too tall bodies. Newer items come in larger sizes.

    As we take every measure to ensure you are advised of the correct sizing prior to purchase - we ask you to please be aware that we don't refund for garments chosen in error. Please don't hesitate to contact us with any queries regarding dimensions before purchase.
