A yukata is essentially a lightweight form of kimono, which is worn casually indoors, or even outdoors during the summer. They are made from thinner, lighter material than the traditional silk kimono, which makes them comfortable and easier to wash. Yukata are usually worn without extra layers, with simple underwear and no tabi socks.
Our yukata are vibrant but also chic, and simple in silhouette, making them ultra easy to customize. Available in standard and plus sizes, and are shipped to you gift-wrapped in Japanese washi paper!
