Valentines Day Gift Ideas

January 29th, 2023

A Brief History of Valentine’s Day
Valentine’s Day is a holiday celebrated annually on February 14th. It is a day when people express their love and affection for one another by exchanging gifts, cards, chocolates, and flowers. But what is the origin of this widely celebrated day? Let’s take a look back at its history to find out why we celebrate it today.

The Origins of Valentine’s Day
Valentine’s Day has its roots in ancient Rome as part of Lupercalia. This is a festival dedicated to the god Faunus. On this day, young men would draw names from a jar and spend the following month with that person as their companion. Later, during the middle ages, Valentine’s Day was associated with courtly love. This is a concept focused on adoration between two people without any physical contact. This tradition was popularized by Geoffrey Chaucer in his poem “Parlement of Foules” which he wrote in 1382. In addition to courtly love, Valentine’s Day also became associated with St. Valentine who was martyred by Emperor Claudius II in 269 AD after attempting to convert him to Christianity.

Why We Celebrate Today
In modern times, we celebrate Valentine’s Day as an opportunity for couples to express their love for each other. We show this through gift-giving and special gestures of affection such as writing heartfelt cards or taking each other out on romantic dates. The exchange of gifts has become one of the most important traditions. It symbolizes appreciation for one another and an expression of thanks for being together on this special day every year.

Unique Gifts
If you’re looking for something unique and practical that your  Valentine will appreciate and use for years to come, look no further than kimonos and yukatas! These stylish Japanese robes are made from quality cotton fabrics that feel great against the skin. They come in a range of styles, colors, and sizes so you can find the perfect one for your gift recipient. Plus, they’re easy to maintain. Just hang them up when not in use and give them a gentle wash now and then. That way, you can be sure they’ll last for years to come.

Kimonos and yukatas aren’t just beautiful pieces of clothing. They have practical uses too. From lounging around on lazy days at home to dressing up for special occasions, these comfortable robes are versatile enough to suit any situation. They can be worn as loungewear or dressed up with accessories like obi belts or tabi socks for more formal events. The possibilities are endless. The value is priceless as they last much longer than flowers or candy. Shop online for a great selection and quick shipping from our Kimono Shop.

The Decision is yours
Valentine’s Day has been around for centuries but its significance remains largely unchanged over time. It is still a day to show your special someone how much they mean to you. From giving thoughtful gifts and writing meaningful cards to spend quality time together, there are many ways you can express your love and appreciation on this special day. So make sure you put some extra effort into making your loved one feel appreciated this February 14th!

Avoiding Knock-Off Japanese Kimonos

January 18th, 2023

Watch Out For Imitation Japanese Kimonos

Japanese kimonos are iconic and versatile garments. Discovered centuries ago, they are as popular as ever today. With their bright, vibrant designs and intricate patterns, it’s no wonder they are worn in so many countries. Unfortunately, with the popularity, comes the rise of knock-off kimonos on the market. It can be difficult to distinguish between authentic and fake kimonos. Thankfully, with a few tips and tricks, you can easily tell the difference between an authentic Japanese kimono and a knock-off.

Authenticity Matters
When it comes to buying a Japanese kimono, authenticity matters. Authentic kimonos are made from high-quality materials such as cotton or silk. Some even feature traditional embroidery using time-tested techniques and intricate details that are difficult to replicate with mass-produced manufacturing methods. Furthermore, authentic Japanese kimonos come with traditional accessories such as obi or sashes. Fake kimonos often lack quality and may be made from cheap materials. These robes won’t stand up to normal wear and tear.

Buy From a Direct Importer
The best way to find an authentic Japanese kimono is to buy directly from a Japanese importer. There are several reputable retailers in the USA. These companies specialize in offering genuine kimonos at affordable prices. When shopping online for a Japanese kimono, make sure you look for the “Made in Japan” tags or labels on the product page. This will help ensure you receive an authentic product rather than a cheap imitation. Additionally, when buying directly from a reputable dealer, you will find unique designs not available anywhere else!

Be Cautious on Sites like Amazon & Etsy
When shopping for a Japanese kimono online, it is important to use caution on sites like Amazon or Etsy. There is often little oversite of the claims that are made. Some of the “Japanese” items found on these sites are knock-offs. They are produced in China, Bali, and other countries that tend to exploit labor. Factories often lack quality control or even basic safety standards. Additionally, some sellers take advantage of unsuspecting customers by charging exorbitant prices for low-quality items. Low-cost labor and inferior-quality fabrics equal a larger profit for the dealer.

Misleading Advertising

We conducted an online search for Kimonos, and a reseller on Amazon appeared. The ad clearly stated Japanese Kimonos, Japanese Robe, and Women’s Japanese Kimono.  If you looked carefully at the ad, further down we saw a line with Japanese-Style Kimono. This was our tip-off. We have never seen a listing for an authentic Japanese Kimono with the phrase Japanese-Style. It is redundant and isn’t applicable. This is only used to suggest it is truly Japanese.

We clicked on the ad and sure enough. When we dove into the description we found the following: Country of Origin: China.  Fabric Type: 100% Polyester. These dealers provide misleading information before the purchase. For this reason alone it is best to stick with experienced, long-term USA dealers. These businesses stand behind service, quality, and customer satisfaction. If you want an authentic Japanese kimono experience, purchase kimonos and yukatas made in Japan but sold in the USA.

Another tip to discern if a kimono is authentic is to read through reviews. Whether it is Etsy, eBay, or Amazon, we often find similar complaints about shipping times, lack of customer service, and incorrect sizing.  Another common complaint is receiving a print that didn’t match what was advertised. The most common issue we hear from their customers is poor quality.

Customers Speak Out

Here are a few reviews we spotted on Amazon listings: “Not worth the price”, “False advertising”, and “parts of the seam unstitched.” Others read, “poor fit and cheap fabric”, and “not at all what I was expecting.” “The pattern isn’t what is shown in the listing.”  As we read more reviews, it didn’t get much better, “Ill-fitting polyester, zero comfort.”

Going further down the line, we found, “The texture of the fabric is not at all soft.” “Now I know why it was only $20.00, you get what you pay for.” “Looks like something mass-produced in China for $2.” “This cheap kimono is nowhere near the quality I paid for another kimono. Now I know why the other one cost two and a half times as much. Buyer beware.”

In conclusion, when it comes to buying an authentic Japanese Kimono it pays to do your research. Make sure you know what kind of fabric you desire. Read ads and reviews thoroughly. Shop for genuine pieces from reputable dealers. We recommend buying from retailers in the USA. Many customers report issues when purchasing online from Japanese dealers directly. By working with a USA-based company, returns and shipping are straightforward. Communication is easy and there is no language translation gap.

One dealer entering into their 29th year in business is Chopa.com. They began in 1994 and are still a leading provider of authentic kimonos and yukata robes. By following these tips you can rest assured knowing your new outfit is genuinely made in Japan!

 

Watch out for knock-off kimonos on the web.

Authentic Kimonos are above the rest.

What is a Yukata?

January 12th, 2023

A Short Guide to Japanese Yukata.

Have you ever heard of a yukata? In Japan, yukata are a type of casual summer kimono. They are often seen at festivals or worn during special occasions. These robes are also great for lounging around the house, especially in the warm summer months. Read on to learn more about this traditional fashion item.

What Is a Yukata?
A yukata is a traditional piece of clothing worn in Japan during the hot summer months. It is made from lightweight cotton fabric and is usually printed with bright colors and artistic patterns. The design of the yukata can vary depending on the individual’s preference. The traditional yukata is full-length. There is also a short-length version known as a Happi Coat. Today, because of their popularity they are worn throughout the year, especially at home.

Yukatas are worn by both men and women, but some designs are gender-specific. Traditionally, men’s yukatas feature bolder colors with simpler patterns. Women’s yukatas tend to be softer in color and feature more intricate patterns. Additionally, men’s yukatas usually have longer sleeves than women’s.  However, there are no hard-and-fast rules when it comes to wearing a yukata. What matters most is that you feel comfortable and look good!

How To Wear a Yukata
Wearing a yukata is simple. While some people prefer to wear an under-robe or garment, others do not. Most people if attending a ceremony or festival will wear lightweight and form-fitting clothing under the robe. Slip the yukata over your shoulders and insert your arms. It is just like putting on a bathrobe or jacket. Fold the left side panel over the right. This is important in Japanese culture. Always wear the left side over the right side. Wearing the right side over the left is used for funerals and signifies death.

Once you have adjusted your robe to the proper and comfortable fit, tie the sash or obi around your waist. This belt can be in a matching fabric pattern or if you seek contrast and want to appear more formal, you can wear a contrasting color. Obis are frequently offered in solid colors as a kimono or yukata accessory. Tie the sash in front to keep the robe closed.

You are now ready to relax, enjoy the ceremony or attend the festival and have some fun. If you are attending a festival, Japanese headbands are commonly worn. It adds a festive appearance to your outfit and will help you get in the spirit of the event. These are usually available from any reputable kimono yukata dealer and cost less than ten dollars each.

Yukatas have been a part of Japanese culture for centuries. The robes remain popular today among people of all ages. Whether you’re attending a festival or just want something comfortable and stylish to wear around your home consider investing in one. With its lightweight fabric and vibrant patterns, wearing a traditional Japanese yukata is sure to keep you cool (and looking great) all season long. Select a yukata made with high-quality cotton fabric for easy care including machine-washable.  Visit Chopa – Your Kimono Source for a wide selection of yukatas and kimonos in many sizes for men, women, and kids.

How To Buy a Kimono Online

December 18th, 2022

We frequently receive questions from friends and customers about how to buy a kimono. Sometimes they ask where to buy a kimono and what should someone know when buying a kimono.  Let’s walk through some basics of purchasing an authentic Japanese kimono.

One of the most important aspects of buying a kimono is how you plan to wear it.  Is this for lounging? Are you attending an event? What is the event and when? If you simply love Japanese culture and want a kimono to wear as a robe or for lounging, then simple cotton robes are the best choice. Robes made of 100% cotton are easy to care for and good quality garments are machine washable.

A soft cotton kimono or lighter-weight yukata is wonderful for lounging around the house. After a soothing shower, slipping into a kimono is not only practical and easy but is extremely comfortable to wear. The distinctive designs place you in a mood and mind of your own. The designs can be very relaxing to the eye and help you remain calm and destressed after a long day. We often find people wearing one after a swim or as a coverup at the beach. Useful, practical, and stylish – that is what a kimono is all about.

If you are seeking a kimono to wear to a ceremony or special event, a cotton robe is still a good choice. Cotton fabric is available in many grades and levels of quality. A tightly woven fabric with a decent cotton count makes for a long-lasting, frequently worn treasure. One you can wear often for many years. The type of design or print will be important depending on the event you attend. The design should flow with the ceremony or social gathering. Consider it similar to a wedding. How formal is the wedding? How formal is the event?  Be practical in your choice and you will not only look great but feel good too.

It is fairly easy to purchase a kimono today. As the popularity has increased, especially in the west, there has also been an influx of dealers or retailers offering these beautiful robes. Shopping online is the easiest. Locate a dealer that has a large selection, quick shipping, especially if you are in a hurry, and easy returns in case it doesn’t fit the exact way you like. One wants to be very careful when shopping online. Like buying anything there are unscrupulous dealers and below-standard retailers trying to take advantage of customers.

We prefer shipping with a dealer that has a long and extensive track record. After all, if a business has been around for over 20 years, it says something about them. In general, a business with a long history shows stability in the market place and their experience will help you find what you are looking for. We receive countless emails each month about foreign-based dealers and the bad experiences customers had with them.

Bad results from shopping overseas include lengthy transit and shipping times. Dealers may offer delivery in a few days but it actually takes over a month to arrive. Taxes, duties and import fees are another issue we hear about. The customer wasn’t told that there may be import taxes due and discover this when they get a bill for $10-$40 for these fees.

Returns seem to be an automatic nightmare for many. Countless unanswered emails and phone calls, translation issues and simple refusals to accept a return are common. Shipping a kimono back to Japan or Asia can be very expensive. Costs range from $25 and up to $45 depending on the level of service, weight, insurance and tracking services.

There are also many dealers who lie about the robes. They ship alternate patterns and prints, use a different fabric and sizing can be far different than what is advertised. A big deception that takes place is where the garment is made. While dealers may claim a Japanese origin, they are often made in China, Viet Nam or Pakistan.

In simple terms, locate a dealer based in the USA. Be sure their reviews provide a positive experience. Look at social media to see they are active and in steady business. Check their listings to see if the Japanese kimono is actually made in Japan. Verify their return policy. Are returns accepted without a lot of fine print and exclusions? Has the online retailer been in business at least 15 years or longer?  If the answer is yes, then you should have some confidence in making your purchase and having comfort that the dealer will honor their promise.

This online dealer has been a leading kimono specialist for nearly 30 years….https://www.chopa.com and has one of the best reputations around.

Ordering Christmas Gifts Online

December 3rd, 2022

Kimonos and yukatas are the perfect gifts for anyone who loves Japanese culture or wants to try something new. They are beautiful, traditional garments that can be worn in many different ways. Some believe it is difficult to find the right size or style, so they should visit www.chopa.com.

Chopa is Your Kimono Source and they make the process painless. Carrying a broad selection of over 100 styles, prints, patterns, and sizes, Kimono shopping is made easy. Chopa was one of the first online retailers of Japanese kimonos and was at the forefront of offering a range of sizes so everyone can find what they need. From short length to tall, wide, and plus-sized, Chopa stocks a kimono for you.

So whether you’re looking for a gift for a friend or a family member who has everything, your problem is solved. Better yet, treat yourself to the comfort and style a kimono offers. Whether lounging on a weekend or working around the house, the perfect kimono or yukata awaits you.

Here are some kimono-buying tips to help.

First, when you are buying clothing as a gift, be sure to check the size charts before you buy. It can be frustrating getting a kimono or yukata that’s too small or too large. Second, take a look at the return policy before you make your purchase. Some stores have stricter return policies during the holidays, so it’s best to be prepared. Chopa extends the return and exchange window so you can enjoy the Holidays rather than interrupting the festivities to head to the post office.

Have the recipient try on the robe and check the fit. Do not use the item as most return policies are voided if worn. Some may want to wear it for a week to see if they like it, but that isn’t an appropriate move if you decide to return it. One thing we will say is that most people if apprehensive at first, find the more they wear it, the better they like it. This is true of the fit as well as the cultural shock that some have. They become a warrior or Kimono princesses.

We recommend shopping early. Stores usually have the best selection early in the buying season. Another factor in shopping online is shipping. You want to be sure the store you are shopping with will ship your gifts with plenty of time for the Holiday. This allows extra time in case of weather delays, a carrier issue, or a random situation that pops up.

Chopa prides itself on quick shipping. Most orders ship within one business day of order placement. Depending on the type of shipping you choose, transit times will take between 2 and 5 business days. During busy Holiday periods, Chopa has additional shipping experts help out. If needed, they operate 7 days a week to keep up with the order flow. Chopa wants your gifts and orders to arrive on time. Service is a priority and always has been.

Here are this year’s deadlines to be sure your package arrives on time.  Understand that some conditions are beyond the control of Chopa including weather delays, high-volume carrier surges, etc.  Happy Holidays everybody! This is the Season to enjoy.
