People often couple the image of the peacock with the idea of ego and, even sometimes, arrogance. However, in our kimono patterns, the peacock represents something a little bit more benevolent. It takes those powerful vibes and stands for the all-encompassing power of love. The peacock represents good will and a nurturing heart. You are someone who looks out for others, who uses your power to make things better and brighter for those around you. You have confidence in your ability to bring about positive change because you come from a place of love. If that sounds like you, this is your kimono pattern.

This symbolic bird represents longevity and good fortune, and brings those elements to anyone who wears it. This green kimono robe uses the elements of depth and vibrancy to bring out the gorgeous impact of this meaningful bird. You might love this kimono pattern if you’re an optimist. If you look for the good in everything and everyone, feel that life is generally on your side, and strive to find gratitude in every day, this kimono robe calls your name. And if you’re looking to cultivate those qualities, what better way to remind yourself to have a positive outlook than to wrap yourself in luxury at the beginning and end of each day?
