Extravagance meets Ease with this reimagining of traditional Japanese Summer clothes, perfect for indoors and out! Soft to the touch!

UN COCON

2022.9.14

Many who come to Japan, especially during the summer, love to see traditional Japanese clothes, called Yukata. Some even love to try them out. But after trying them out, they are put off by the complicated methods that are used to wear them and so can’t take them back with them. We saw this problem and want to help solve it! We want to bring these cool Japanese traditional Yukata to the world, and make them easy to wear at the same time!


We think that if you are able to wear these types of clothes easily, then people will look to wear them more often in their everyday life! 

We hope that with these yukata you look forward to wearing them more often! 



◆5 points that make this yukata amazing! 



1.A brilliant but scarcely used material!

To make this Yukata, we use Asha Organic cotton, a cotton that is soft to the touch, light, and has a quality like that of silk, making it said to be the Cashmere of the cotton world!

Out of all organic cotton products that are made in the world, only 1.2% of them are made from this extremely rare cotton, so we hope that you enjoy using it!

It feels soft on the skin, and is brilliantly smooth, meaning that you can wear it from morning to night without feeling anything! This exceedingly luxurious cotton has been used generously, so that your body feels extra comfortable and wrapped in something like air!

2. Brilliant Japanese made quality

A factory based in Kagoshima that makes over 110,000 pieces of nightwear clothes will be making the yukatas for us with this project. Each item is made one by one to ensure quality.

We are pros when it comes to Yukatas, and by mixing knowledge of excellent sleepwear and techniques in making items, we have been able to create a yukata that matches the times, while also being a delight to wear.

3. Washable at home!

Many people who buy yukata from us often ask us if it is washable at home. Yukatas are seen to be rather hard to maintain, but with this yukata offered in this project, we have made sure that you can wash it at home! Just pop it in a washing net, you’re good to go!

It is also great when it comes to colour changing/fading/running, being tested to be above a grade 4 in regards to industry tests.

So you can wear and wash this at home and not worry about any change to the colour when you do so.

So feel free to wear it everyday and feel extravagant in this super soft and light yukata while not worrying about the quality degrading over time!


4. Super Easy to Wear!

Many people when they look at Kimono or Yukata are put off due to thinking that they are hard to wear.

That’s true for old traditional versions, but with this Yukata, wearing it couldn’t be easier! Just by tying the cord that is attached to the lower back of the yukata, you don’t need to worry about getting it right over and over! Feel free to just wear, wrap, tie, and leave the house all in one swoop!


5. Part of the Peace By Peace Cotton Project

By backing this project, in particular the Asha Organic Cotton Yukata, you help to protect the futures of the farms, farmers and children in the areas that this cotton is made.

Are you aware how cotton is prepared and made?

In order to be able to cultivate the natural cotton plants, a vast amount of pesticides, chemical fertilisers, as well as land is needed. With this, manure is also needed to be purchased, and this leads to a large burden of debts that is placed onto the farmers that make this cotton.

Furthermore, in order to maintain the labour needed, many children are made to work fields, meaning they are not able to go to schools.

In order to prevent and protect against these costs, both financially and societally, the Peace By Peace Cotton Project (PBP) was created.


When these materials are imported into Japan, funds are placed into a foundation, and through the PBP this money is split between farmers, in order to help them move towards more organic farming, while also being provided to children in order to allow them to study.

We want to make this project that helps to bring a smile to everyone’s faces.


By removing unnecessary parts to create an effortlessly chic piece of clothing, we hope that many people are able to wear it and feel a sense of refinement.

It is also unisex meaning that anyone can enjoy wearing it.


Haori (羽織)

For days where it’s a bit chilly, you can wear this light overcoat or haori, and keep warm!

You can even wear it with western style clothing without worry! 

Made using a Vortex weaving machine, this haori is made to be resistant to pilling, easy to wash, and has less fibres fall off, meaning you can feel free to wear it during your everyday life!


Belt for use outside (お出かけ帯)

This belt is to help level your yukata even more, making it even for stylish and fun to wear!

For those that want to have an even more fitted and tidy feel, you can use this belt to do so.

Made from a high quality dobby fabric, it is strong and durable, perfect for use outside!

About the Project Creator

UN COCON is based in the traditional capital of Japan, Kyoto, and we aim to bring various traditional Japanese culture and ideals or [WA (和)]to the rest of the world. This is one of our founding principles. UN COCON was formed in 2009, with our main principle to design and sell mainly Yukata.

Since our founding, we have striven to design yukata that are easy to wear.

This includes:

・Making yukatas that are flashy or make use of bright colours that younger people are more likely to wear.

・Making yukatas for those that find it hard to wear, creating separated versions for them

・Making pair versions for parent and child that look great while also being easy for parents to put on their kids.

Our CEO has been engaged at the forefront of Japanese style clothing for the past 32 years, and has been designing and making items that are in style for the times, while not forgetting the apparels amazing roots.

This Project is promoted by Japankuru Funding, Bringing Japanese Products to the West!

Our desire with this project

It started with a thought, “I want to bring Japanese clothes into the modern age, and have many people all around the world enjoy them”.

That thought was shared by a manufacturer that has been making Kimonos since 1914, Kimura Jitsugyo Co., LTD (木村実業株式会社), as well as the company that will be providing the Asha Organic Cotton, founded in 1893, Yagi Co. LTD (株式会社ヤギ).

We hope that the items produced via this project can show off the amazing qualities of these two companies and the work they produce.

We hope that we can act as a conduit to bring our designed Yukata to people all over the world, something that both suits indoor and outdoors, while also creating a chance for everyone to learn about traditional yukata and kimono!
