Valentine’s Day should be a day to celebrate love.

Today in the journal, we’re going to help introduce you to the uniqueness of these silk robes for women (and men!). We’re going to illuminate the process behind each handcrafted pieces so that when you gift your silk robe or plus size kimono to the one you love, you can do so knowing the background and heritage behind each and every piece. You want a beautiful Valentine’s Day gift as special and unique as they are, and with each of our silk robes, you’ll find a piece that speaks straight to their heart and becomes something they love to wear for years to come.
One of the most unique aspects of our entire collection is the production process behind the Handpainted Silk Collection. It takes seven days from start to finish to create just one of these handcrafted Handpainted Silk robes for women. It starts with a hand-drawn sketch, a rich saturation of watercolors on 100% silk to create a one of a kind piece that is unique as she is. You can see the full process of these silk robes for women on our YouTube page to see the entire design process and how our artisans saturate the silk. It’s an intricate process that our partner artisans have been perfecting for decades, and creates a piece that is one of a kind, one that can’t be duplicated due to its handcrafted nature. If you really want to wow someone you love this Valentine’s Day, the Handpainted Silk Collection are the silk robes for you.
Whether you’re shopping our ‘one size fits most’ collection or our Plus Size Kimono Robe Collection, each and every piece is handcrafted with the details that mean the most to you and your love. For starters, our ‘one size fits most’ and plus size kimono robes are offered in Charmeuse, Silk, and Washable Silk. The inner ties add an extra level of security to the wrap offered by the outer sash. The tag is not a hang tag (we highly recommend hanging these on hangers) so as not to tear the delicate material. And at the bottom of each hem are side slits that help the pieces lay flat during shipment. You can easily snip those extra stitches before wearing so that your silk robe flows and sways your way whenever you’re walking.
A kimono — literally translated as “the thing worn”— is a work of art, a vibrant canvas draped over the wearer that, as history states, is as integral to her persona as her own physical attributes. Our T-shaped silk robes for women are designed with elegance and function in mind to create classic kimono robes that make for a sophisticated staple to any wardrobe — no matter how you wear it, it elevates your day. While our modern kimono robes do not replicate traditional Japanese kimono, they are heavily inspired by the craftsmanship and functionality of these historical garments, as well as our founders’ own families’ Chinese and Japanese heritages, experiences with kimono as young girls, and vintage Asian art. Our kimonos draw inspiration from the various styles of traditional Chinese brushwork, capturing the artistic principles of depth, contrast, space, and balance. Many of our robes feature romantic, tranquil scenes of timeless botanicals that bear significance. For example, the lotus flower symbolizes good luck and fortune, a sentiment we wish to share with our customers. Our kimonos are designed in San Francisco. Inspired by vintage Asian art and the timeless beauty of botanicals, we work to highlight trending seasonal colors, and choose palettes that compliment various skin tones and complexions. Our creative juices flow best when we unwind to our favorite music, focus on serenity, take deep breaths and allow our minds to be free. And when you gift one of these pieces to the one you love, they’ll feel the blend of heritage and modern day mentality in every touch of silk.
The fit of our silk robes for women is varied and accommodates every body. Our ‘one size fits most’ collection offers the T-shaped design without shoulder seams so that each and every piece can drape over your body in the way that’s most comfortable for you. Our plus size kimono robes offer the same structure with a little extra room in the chest and hips to provide additional comfort without sacrificing any luxury. You can see exact measurement details on every product page under “SIZING” to give you the most accurate idea of fit for every piece.
