Size Guide

Cool and refined, yoryu creates a timeless elegance with a traditional sense of beauty.

"Yoryu," meaning “willow,” is a type of woven fabric where the crepe on the surface of the fabric, called "shibo," looks like willow leaves swaying in the wind. These shibo are produced by applying a strong twist only to the weft yarns. In addition to its fashionable look, it is durable, wrinkle-resistant, sweat-absorbent, and quick-drying. The look of willow leaves has a unique beauty and creates a sophisticated atmosphere. The threads connecting the sleeves to the body of the jinbei are hand-made by Japanese artisans in the traditional way.

This is the kind of garment that makes you want to go out for a cool evening stroll. This jinbei allows you to experience the traditional Japanese fashion sense of “Iki,” long considered to be very refined and chic. Wear it with an air of elegance while enjoying the summer in style and comfort.

What Are Jinbei?

Looking for a unique and stylish way to stay cool in the summer heat? Made of lightweight and breathable materials, our traditional Japanese wear, Jinbei, is the perfect solution for hot summer days.

Each Jinbei consists of a yukata-like jacket and knee-length pants. Originally, they were worn at Japanese summer festivals in place of yukata. These days, they are popularly worn at home as loungewear or nightwear.

With various colors and designs to choose from, you're sure to find the perfect jinbei to match your style.

Jinbei by Wasuian

Founded in Kiryu City, Gunma Prefecture, a city renowned for its textile industry, Wasuian initially manufactured haori and obi. We are the No. 1 Japanese jinbei manufacturer, from making them at our own factory to direct sales. Combining traditional techniques with functionality and design suited to the modern age, our artisans work hard to make each garment in a proper working environment.

Our jinbei are available with hand-knitted octopus thread on the sides or custom-made torsion lace dyed to match the fabric's color. The silhouettes are simple yet elegant with the original Japanese kimono silhouette.

Wasuian’s Commitment: The Beauty of the Collar

The collar has always been an essential part of the kimono, as is evident in the idiom "Eri Wo Tadasu" ("straighten the collar"). In our jinbei, we avoid placing stitches on the front of the collar by using the sophisticated drop stitching technique. It relies on the fingertips to apply the sewing machine to the edge of the collar, just 1 to 2 mm away. This is possible only at Wasuian, where artisans carefully make every piece by hand.
