  • £60.00

Hand printed BIG kimono robe in soft cotton. This is our new, simple and extra-roomy Yukata Kimono made in a wide T-shape with straight sides and dropped shoulders. This is a unisex fit by special request which lets the print speak for itself without any potentially fussy detail. We understand that this print is actually screen printed rather than block printed.

One size. Length 130cm approx. so will be floor length if you are 5'4" or under, fits roughly size UK10-20.

Created for Red Squirrel Store by highly skilled artisans in Rajasthan.

Please note this particular print is heavily pigmented with indigo and quite a bit of excess blue will be released into the water in the first wash. With a deep indigo garment please also be cautious of rub colour transfer in early use, for example if sitting on white or light upholstery. Nevertheless, indigo is special and absolutely worth having.

We recommend hand washing at a cool temperature with mild detergent to preserve the colours. The kimono cotton is very light and so quick and easy to wash by hand. With care your robe will only lighten gradually and beautifully over time like a favourite pair of jeans.

And... if you dry your robe carefully after laundering, you may feel no need to iron as the cotton hangs so well.
