#040 Tokyo Brooklyn Bike

from 85.00

Jinbei are a casual style of kimono that is perfect for relaxing around the house, at the beach, in summer, and for sleeping. The loosely fit design and string tie adjustments allow babies to wear the same size for over a year. 

This jinbei is approximately 70cm - 80cm (27.5" - 31.5") and is designed to fit babies that are 0 to 2 years old.

The string ties make it easy to put on lying down, and the pants comfortably cover babies' diapered bottoms with long crotch to waist design.

#040 jinbei is made from hand-dyed textile made by Japanese artisans at the historic studio Todaya in Tokyo, Japan. Since 1872, Todaya has used the traditional chusen technique for hand-dyeing tenugui. Unlike printed fabric, textiles dyed with this technique have vibrant colors on both sides and stay bright through after many washes. 

The 100% natural tokuoka cotton fabric, made specially for Todaya, gets softer and softer though each use, and each patterns has a unique name and story associated with it.

#040 jinbei uses "bike" for the body, "ryo-komochi shima" for the sleeves, and "kagome" for the pants. 

Bike: this pattern is designed by Todaya's CEO, who is a big fan of bikes. When you look closely, you would notice that there are several different types of bike depicted in the textile. It is dyed with batik technique, combined with chusen.

Ryo-komochi shima: this is a stripe (shima) pattern, which consists of thick line in the middle and thin line on both sides (ryo = ryo-gawa = both sides). "Komochi" means "with children", and it's referring to the thin lines, attached to the thick line.

Kagome: a traditional pattern based on woven bamboo baskets. This intriguing pattern has been popular and widely used for Edo-komon (detailed kimono patterns originated in Edo) and yukata summer kimono.
