One of our most popular men’s designs, Family Crest cotton kimono is ideal for everyday wear as a practical, stylish alternative to a dressing gown. Its bold, masculine design features heraldic crests on a striking geometric background.
Family crests have a centuries-old tradition in Japan, much like coats of arms in European heraldic tradition. Samurai warriors used crests to distinguish friend from foe, while in more peaceful times they identified tradesmen, actors or other professionals.
Family Crest kimono has the traditional kimono shape and rectangular, three-quarter length sleeves. It comes without belt loops, allowing you to tie the narrow matching belt quickly and easily at the most comfortable position. The open sleeves can also serve as pockets.
In our blog post ‘The story behind our Family Crest kimono’, we identify the crests used in its design and tell the story of crests through the ages.
