At ThisBlueBird, we offer an incredible selection for anyone and everyone. Here are the top 5 vintage kimono robes you should purchase for holiday gifts this year. Don’t miss out!

If you love florals…

This is baby blue blend is definitely the vintage kimono for you! The silk robe has tiny flowers all throughout the fabric and a handmade sash. It also has green spots throughout dyed with a Japanese manual resist dyeing technique that produces the unique, flower-like pattern. Straight from the 1980s and an awesome buy for the holidays!

If you want something ~funky~…

If you’re not looking for something soft or understated, don’t count yourself out of the game for kimono robes. We’re heading back to the 1960s and going ~funky~ for this one. The coral, orange, and blue maple leaf departs from some of our subtler designs and is sure to draw anyone’s eye. The sash is handmade and pulls the whole thing together!
