Zen Koromo Priest's Robe, Summer weight is part of our Zen clothing line.
Our Zen Koromo is a Soto Priest's Robe which is based on a typical pattern. It is more stylized and formal than the Lay Robe. The bodice is actually more similar to the Jubon. The skirt portion has more pleats and they overlap. And, there is an "arm pit ventilation" feature. The sleeves of the Koromo are extra long, extending far beyond the finger tips. We make the robe from the identical 100% fine quality, durable, cotton fabric.
The length of the lower portion of the Koromo hem is about 9" from the floor.
The sleeve portion extends beyond the finger tips when arms are outstretched by about 3" -4".
The sleeve dept from the top of the arm towards the floor is 27". If you 'd like deeper/longer length sleeves, please ask when ordering. There is an additional $10.00 charge for the time required to make deeper 36" sleeves.
Your have two fabric choices:
- a Black men's dress shirt weight fabric
- a light weight fabric just about 30% lighter weight than the regular fabric.
The lighter weight fabric is an excellent choice if you live in a warmer climate or want a Koromo for late Spring and Summer wear which is not so hot.
For XL - XXL add 20% additional.
If you have another fabric in mind, we can make the robe using your own selection of fabric. Call us first, then place the order.
