This women’s dark navy blue indigo hand-stitched yukata cotton kimono has a charming geometric diamond and checked pattern. Navy blue, white and red colours match well and look refreshing. It has nice warm soft texture of second-hand cotton kimono.
The yukata is slightly starched. Traditionally Japanese people like cotton kimono to be starched because of the crispy fresh feeling in very hot summer weather. The yukata will soften after a couple of gentle hand pressed washes in cold water.
This cotton kimono is quite long. Please check the measurement. You may need to have a bit of tuck at your waist with this length of kimono unless you are very tall. You can adjust the length by using a koshihimo (a cord tied around the waist of a womans kimono to hold it in place). Koshihimo is available for £4. Please ask for more details.
The model is about 157cm (5’2”).
It has certain wear and marks. Please check the detail photos and 'Extra Images'.
