'Kusaritoi' Yukata

  • This gorgeous vintage yukata or summer kimono is made of lightweight quality cotton and has been very well cared for. We've named this little number 'Rain chain' for the links from top to toe and the summer rain.

    Rainchains are a decorative way to channel rain from Japanese rooftops and make our downpipes look rather bland. Unusually this yukata features both indigo and green mixed with white in the patterning. Most yukata worn are simply blue and white in a wide variety of patterns. We've not come across this particular pattern before.

    Yukata make great warm weather bath robes or dressing gowns.

    In ryokan (traditional inn) and onsen (hot spring) areas in Japan it is common to see people wearing yukata in the streets.

    Condition - Excellent apart from slight age discolouration on the neckline

    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.
