Our Shadow Crane ladies cotton kimono is made in Kyoto and has the classic kimono shape and rectangular hanging sleeves. Its design is also in the ancient Japanese tradition: cranes are a symbol of long life and good fortune. One of our most popular designs, this kimono would also make the perfect gift.
Elegant yet practical, Shadow Crane kimono is ideal for everyday wear as a stylish alternative to a dressing gown or bathrobe. Being a wrap, it is very adaptable to your shape and size, and the narrow matching belt can be tied at the most convenient position. The kimono’s open sleeves also serve as pockets.
Please note that this robe is one inch longer than most of our ladies’ kimono designs.
Our blog post ‘Cranes as symbols in kimono design’ explains the significance of cranes – now an endangered species – in Japanese culture.
