Japanese yukata

10 Jul



Japanese yukata is traditional Japanese clothing. The name “yukata” comes from the word “yu (bath)” and “katabira (under-clothing)”. It is usually made of cotton or synthetic fabric. They can be worn by both sexes. Unlike kimono, yukata is lighter and more comfortable to wear. It is also more casual and is not suitable for formal events.


Traditionally, yukata is worn when bathing outdoor to cover up the bodies and to soak up sweat. Today, yukata is usually worn during the hot summer months, festival celebrations and at Japanese inns after bathing. The modern yukata are available in a wide variety of colours and designs. Yukata worn by men are usually just plain colours or with stripes, whereas, ladies’ yukata comes in various designs, such as flowers and paintings, and in various colours.  


All our yukata set includes robe, wooden clogs (geta) and sash (obi), which is all you need to complete the look. They are great as gift ideas for the ladies (no need to worry about sizing as one size fits most) and you can even wear it to parties.
