This is a sample book of printed cotton designs for unlined summer kimono or yukata. The samples are commercially produced and were intended to be used as a selling tool for the dyeing company that compiled this sample book.

The designs are lyrical and lighthearted in nature, the reason for this is that yukata are often worn during hot and humid Japanese summers so cooling patterns and designs on summer clothing aid in psychologically alleviating the burden of stifling weather.

Great for quilters or craftspeople.
