Our restorative gift set makes lounging around so rewarding. Presented in a wooden gift box, this luxury set includes:

-An original vintage kimono, handpicked in Japan. Long, flowing, silky and fully lined. In a pretty textured blush pink and featuring a print of houses on the river and Akamatsu pine in the wind on a mountaintop. In Japanese, as in English, the word 'pine' (松 or 待つ) can have two meanings: the ubiquitous pine tree, or to long for a beloved. It’s deeply symbolic and a symbol of good fortune in Japan, often featuring on gifts presented at New Year, a wish of luck for the days to come.

-A vintage obijime belt, woven in coordinating colours.

-A binchotan charcoal eye mask. Made in Wakayama, Japan, this sumptuous eye mask is lined with binchotan-infused cotton, to help mitigate the appearance of puffiness and eye bags. Binchotan is a premium activated charcoal that has been revered in Japan for centuries, due to its natural purifying and detoxifying properties. The body is made from softly padded silky satin with adjustable straps for a perfect fit. Great for relaxation, meditation, airplane travel and restful sleep.

Kimonos are usually rather formal-wear but you can treat this piece as the most luxurious loungewear: a ‘komon’ or everyday kimono, or ‘nemaki’ aka sleepwear.

One size. Full length- hoist up with the belt. This is an original vintage garment from Japan. The piece has been laundered and mended but as it’s vintage it won’t be in perfect as-new condition and may have a couple of marks and imperfections. That’s part of its story. Wear it, love it, hand it down: add another chapter. To take care of your gown over time we recommend dry-cleaning.
