A yukata is an unlined cotton summer kimono, and it is usually worn in more casual settings. On my last trip to Japan to study shibori techniques. I was very fortunate to be able to visit several antique shops in Tokyo that carry beautiful vintage fabrics, obis, kimonos and yukata. A trip to a flea market in Kyoto lead to a few more treasures as vendors were selling old yukata and fabrics. this collection is based on those experiences, and my love for vintage Japanese designs says Debbie.
