Black Long Kimono Robe: Black Elegance

60.00

Out most popular and loved design. There is something about this design that makes everyone fall in love with it. We called this black long kimono robe Black Elegance simply because everyone looks elegant in it despite its playful design. It features traditional plated sleeves, a belt and a narrow smooth lapel. I designed it in a way that despite its’ shorter length it has a floaty effect. It is super light. Mainly because I am using very thin and soft cotton.  We used only natural colors for this statement piece and it fits sizes S, M and L! Model’s height is 167cm.

How is it made and what to know? 

We make all our kimonos using the traditional ancient block print techniques. We craft the wooden stamps in order to achieve the final design. Any usage of electricity is avoided. Hence we use traditional manual sewing machines for the stitching. The inner finish is not smooth! But it does not affect the final look. The belts match the design of the kimono robe but if requested differently, we can change the design of the belts.

Material

All decorative parts of the kimono such as buttons or belts are made mainly but not only of waste materials. We are aiming to be as sustainable as our resources allow us to be. So far we have been successful in achieving 0 waste and 0 additional electricity as all the production happens in our homes and we keep our inventory at the minimum. We source the colors naturally. Natural colors CAN BLEED! Hence please follow the washing instructions below.

How to take care of your Naturally Dyed Kimono?

Because our Black Long Kimono Robe is made of 100% cotton with natural dyes, please wash it only by hand in lukewarm water using mild soaps ideally only in the underarm areas. Do not dry in direct sun and avoid dryers. We do not use electric sewing machines. It is all made by hand hence the traditional approach has an effect on the final finish. Color deviations can occur as a result of the technique called block print technique. We use wooden crafted stamps to achieve the final print designs.
