Ubugi Baby Kimono 2021

Regular price $99 Unit price  per 

Description:
Ubugis are traditionally the first kimono mothers in Japan give to their newborn babies. This particular ubugi’s cleverness comes from the fact that it can accommodate a baby from 0 to 24 months, a feature that will appeal to new parents looking for sustainable and convenient clothing options. The ubugi reaches down to the feet for newborns with an inner ribbon that can be tied for a snug fit. Hidden stitches inside the shoulder can be cut as babies grow, extending the arm sleeve and turning the kimono into a kimono shirt. The fabric, made of a 100% cotton cloth called tenugui, is hand-dyed in Japan by extremely skilled craftspeople. It will only become lovelier with each wash, softening beautifully over time.

Measurements:
One size fits 0 to 24 months.
18.5'' L x 21'' W (sleeve end to sleeve end) x 9'' W (side to side)

History:
Our ubugis are produced by Tortoise General Store, handmade and hand-stitched in Tokyo by Naomi Shinomoto. Naomi is a professional seamstress, and currently works for various clients in Tokyo. She's also the sister of Tortoise co-owner, Taku Shinomoto.

 

Materials:
100% cotton

Variation:
Each kimono is handmade so there may be slight variation; however, every ubugi is one standard size. The fabric used is hand-dyed so slight variations in coloration may occur.

Care Instructions:
Hand-wash the first few wears to prepare the cloth for machine washing. Machine wash cold and low tumble dry (or hang dry) for best results.

 

Returns must be made within 2 weeks in original, unused condition with all packaging for either 1. Store credit for the full amount or 2. Refund - minus a 20% restocking fee.  Tortoise does not cover the cost of return shipping or the cost of re-shipping an exchange, and the cost of shipping for returns and exchanges is the responsibility of the customer.
