This women’s hand-stitched yukata cotton kimono has a fantastic classic nadeshiko (fringed pink) and water stream design. All those colours on a white background is cool and refreshing which I always love. Yin and Yang is a wonderful antique piece.
It would be stunning to use as a dress and also display as a wonderful piece of art for a room.
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.
It has some marks and certain wear but as a whole, it is in good condition for the age. Please check the detail photos and the 'Extra Images'.
Note: This kimono does not come with a belt. If you would like one, please check my casual obi collection on casual-obi-belt.html. Prices start from £7 or £8 for a belt.
