Material Study: What Exactly is a Charmeuse Kimono Robe?

At KIM+ONO, we have a love of all things soft and beautiful. From stillness and meditation to the warmth of a summer breeze, we see how gentle beauty in everyday occurrences can elevate your mood and your life. We know that you have attempted to strike that balance of softness and grit, and beauty and drive, in your businesses, as mothers, and as modern women. It’s easy to get wrapped up in the hustle, but the beautiful softness of everyday items is an easy way to ground yourself in the beauty that surrounds you all the time.

We’ve brought that love of softness and beauty to every material in each of our collections. You may be familiar with our silks, and while we happen to believe every woman (and man!) should have a silk kimono robe in their closet, we know you needed an option that was easy to care for but just as soft and luxurious. Enter: our Charmeuse Collection.

This collection has a material that is just as soft as silk, but with an easier laundering process. These kimono robes can be gently washed in cold water on a delicate cycle and hung to dry. They’re easy to care for and easy to wear. Perfect for the modern woman who is always on the go and wants to bring a bit of luxury with her that she can easily wash. Here are some of our favorite charmeuse kimono robes that blend the beauty and softness you deserve with the ease of care you love.

A Simple Kimono Pattern to Love

We love the minimalism and breath of our newest kimono patterns. We focused these newest designs around the idea of breath and space, bringing a simplicity and ease to the pattern, as the kimono robe material itself remains soft and gentle against your skin. As the green kimono robe drapes against your neck and falls fluidly to your ankles, you have a bit of luxury in every inch. We love the forest color of this green kimono robe to highlight the gentleness of the material. With the charmeuse blend as the background, this kimono pattern pops and brings a sense of calm, balance, and peace.

The Pinks and Flowers of Soft Kimono Robes

What is more delicate and beautiful than a gorgeous kimono pattern of flowers against a soft pink backdrop? In our opinion, not very much. We love the feminine accents of this charmeuse kimono robe. With the softness of the charmeuse-polyester blend, the Fura Kimono Robe stands out as a closet must-have. Whether pairing with jeans or lounging around the apartment, this is softness you can feel in a kimono robe you can launder: an ideal combination for a woman amidst the hustle.

Your Favorite White Kimono Robe

We know that white kimono robes are a fan favorite for many of our customers. They’re not only perfect for your wedding day, but they also bring forth a sense of pure intentions and subtle vision. The white kimono robe is a strong statement of peace, gentleness, and subtlety. That’s part of the reason we love this white kimono robe with its delicate cherry blossom design popping from the charmeuse material. It’s a perfect piece to wear as a kimono cardigan or other light layer as you transition from season to season. But it’s just as beautiful to wear at home, just for yourself.

Two Kimono Robes to Make a Statement

One of the reasons we love the charmeuse blend as an addition to our silk offerings is that color pops beautifully off of it. That couldn’t be more true than with our Maren Kimono Robe and Peony & Butterfly Kimono Robe. The black of the Maren makes the perfect canvas for the simple flowers to make a statement. A purple kimono robe is the ultimate in luxury, beauty, and power. We love the rich color of plum and the drama it evokes. Drape your purple kimono robe over a black turtleneck for a powerful look, or wear during your nightly routine to remind you of the queen you are.

A Flower Kimono Robe You’ll Take Everywhere

We love the Charmeuse Collection because it makes it easy to bring your kimono robe with you! Whether you use your flower kimono robe as a lightweight layer, a cover up, or cardigan, it’s an easy piece to pull from your closet at the start of each day. The easy to care for instructions — just wash in cold water on a delicate cycle and hang dry — make this a piece you won’t be too worried about when it’s out and about in the world. And that makes it even more fun to dress up and take out. Take a risk, try something new, and be assured that this piece will bring your kimono style to a brand new level.

A Kimono Wrap with the Same, Soft Material You Love

Our kimono wraps are some of our most loved pieces in our Charmeuse Collection, and it’s easy to understand why. They’ve got all the softness of the charmeuse blend with the added touch of beautiful velvet on the kimono sleeves and collar, adding extra weight and making it an instant classic. The charmeuse is a slightly thicker material than our silks, at 22mm thick as compared to the silk at 19mm thick. This little extra weight, coupled with the velvet kimono sleeves, makes this kimono wrap a little extra in the best way. 

The Beauty of Charmeuse Kimono Robes

Whether you are well-versed in charmeuse or you’re ready to add one of these beautiful blends to your closet, there is always something new to love about these pieces. From the slight increase in thickness from our silks to the way they serve as a beautiful backdrop for gorgeous flowers, from their easy to care for laundering instructions to their undeniable softness, these charmeuse kimono robes are the perfect go-to for a woman on the go, who still wants to bring a little luxury to her everyday.
