#050 ao origami aka koshi jinbei set

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.

All warashi-ko jinbei are made exclusively from hand-dyed textiles by Japanese artisans using the traditional chusen technique. Unlike printed fabric, textiles dyed with this technique have vibrant colors on both sides and uniqueness are heightened through uses and washes. 

The textile is the highest quality 100% tokuoka cotton fabric. As a character of the fabric, it gets softer and softer though each use, and each patterns has a unique name and story associated with it.

#050 jinbei uses "origami" for the top body, and "korai-koshi" for the pants. 

Origami: The Depiction of good-old origami shapes, such as cranes, yakko san, kabuto (samurai helmet), lined up neatly against white background makes this origami pattern a fun and sophisticated design. 

"Origami" is designed by Yuki Noguchi at Ahiroya. Her intricate designs are based on traditional patterns, as well as her daily experiences. Each piece is poetic and work of art in and of itself. 

Korai-koshi: it was a favorite pattern of a famous kabuki actor, 5th Koshiro Matsumoto. The name was taken from the actor's family name "Korai", and "koshi" means cross stripes. 

"Korai-koshi" is made at the historic studio Todaya in Tokyo, Japan. Since 1872, Todaya has used the traditional chusen technique for hand-dyeing textiles. 

Each jinbei is shipped wrapped in soft furoshiki gauze cloth.
