Adventuresome quilters love to work with yukata cottons. The out-of-the-ordinary patterns add a special spirit to their projects.

Approximately 14” wide, yukata cotton is loomed for making casual, unlined summer kimono. One bolt measures 12 yards—the exact amount needed to make one kimono.

Artisans, using the ​chusen​ method, hand-dye this remarkable cotton with paper stencils and vivid colors.

Okan Arts sources 20- to 60-year-old yukata cottons in Japan from kimono stores, antique shops, flea markets, and pickers. The vintage bolts are shipped to Tokyo where they are consolidated for the journey to Okan Arts in North America.
