The Yukata is a casual version of the kimono. It is a robe that is wrapped around the body and fastened with a sash (obi). Yukata literally means "bathing cloth" and it was originally intended to be just that. Recently, the yukata has also become a way of dressing for summer festivals with increasingly fashionable designs. Yukatas for young women are usually bright and colorful, often with floral designs. This beautiful Yukata is in burgundy with beautiful flowers sprinkled throughout the fabric. The Obi is an elegant light gold with a sheen. The ensemble together with the graceful Fan will make you feel the zen of a Japanese spa. Free tutorials on wearing and wrapping your new Yukata and Obi can be found on YouTube.
