Yukata Cottons :: Okan Arts

hand-dyed japanese cottons

A true Japanophile, I love to visit Japan and import vintage yukata cottons. My inventory to date includes over 550 bolts of different patterned cottons from the 1960s through to the 1990s.

The majority of the yukata fabrics are hand-dyed. Traditionally the cotton was dyed with indigo blue but many of the newer patterns are produced with a vivid array of colors. In Japan, one bolt is used to make one yukata—a casual unlined summer kimono.

My brick-and-mortar shop in the Ballard neighborhood of Seattle is a great place to see the whole collection. Please make an appointment to visit by emailing: patricia@okanarts.com
