This Japanese robe features two highly symbolic characters: the dragon and the hawk. The men's yukata can be worn during celebrations, or lounging at home while cooling down from an afternoon of work in sweltering heat! Yukata are versatile and can be used as a cover up at the pool or after a bath or shower.
The dragon is a wise and powerful creature that can be found in different corners of the world. They are seen as guardians with destructive potential, but their protective nature symbolizes strength and bravery for those willing to take them on or for those needing it most. Because they are bold fighters, dragons represent a fighting spirit, nobility and modesty.
The hawk symbolizes a bold spirit as well as bravery and nobility. An old proverb says 'a wise hawk hides its talents'. Thus, the hawk describes a person that is very talented, but modest. Hawks represent boldness and their ability makes one "wise." Pairing the dragon and hawk together represents wedded bliss.
This men's robe displays the dragon and hawk taking flight among Japanese Tsuri pines. Accented in gold and white and set against a black background. This robe has butterfly sleeves, is easy to care for and comfortable to wear; machine wash cold for best results. A matching belt is included.
This Japanese dragon robe is available in size: Small/Medium and Large.
Small/Medium, measures 56” in length and is designed to fit a male 5’ 7" to 5’ 11” in height. The sleeve length is 15”, the shoulder width is 26”, and the girth is 46”.
Large measures 58" length and is designed to fit a man 5' 10" to 6' 2" in height. The sleeve length is 15", the shoulder width is 27" and the girth is 48".
Girth is the entire width of the fabric, so the robe adjusts to different waist sizes. It is designed to wrap around you and fasten with the belt. To determine length, place a tape measure on top of your shoulder and measure down the front to see where the length will fall on you.
