Yukata (indigo-dyed summer kimono) developed as a type of Kimono to be primarily worn after bathing. It is not formal wear but requires elegance and a sense of humor. This is because Edo people have an Iki (smart) character. Yukata became room wear/nightwear in the 19th century and has been used for summer festivals, including En-nichi (festival days), other festive occasions, and fireworks displays. Its thin cotton fabric breathes well, and is less likely to stick to sweaty skin. Yukata gives off a cool-looking impression as a common feature of Japanese summertime. Although the current mainstream is Yukata of print dyeing type, a craftsman uses dye containers of a sprinkling can type, called Yakan (kettles), to pour dyes onto the fabricin the original traditional dyeing process. This is a Japan- specific dyeing method called Chusen. When multiple Yakan filled with different colored dyes are used for simultaneous pouring, beautiful shadings can be created, but this technique calls for a high degree of skill. Its controlled colors, based on indigo and deep blue, represent “Iki Eand produce manual-dyed specific textures that emulate the fading brought about by many years of use.
