  • Zen Lay robe meditation garment.

Zen Lay Robe, regular weight


Zen Lay Zen Robe, regular cotton weight.

The Zen Lay robe is a traditional Soto formal style meditation garment appropriate for use in the meditation hall by the lay practitioner. Often, one wears the Robe over a Jubon (Japanese undergarment, similar to the way we use a dress shirt beneath an over coat.) The Jubon is especially helpful in the fall-early spring or in cold weather. Sometimes the Jubon can be worn over a Kimono to provide an additional layer.

We make our Zen Lay Robes in "care-free" wrinkle resistant 100% fine quality, durable, cotton fabric.

Regular weight fabric is similar to a heavy men's dress shirt. Please see the Summer weight for warmer seasons.

Black is our standard color since that is what is ordered most often.

Colors other than black are special order, and there is a additional 20% charge added during check out.

Please note if you selection XL - XXXL add 20%.
