Zazen robes made by Still Sitting consist of a kimono, hakama, and collar, and can be purchased as a full set or as single items. They are modeled on the informal robes worn by Japanese Zen monks and nuns.
They come in two (2) pieces. The sturdy hakama is pleated to allow for easy folding of the legs. The light weight kimono has pockets in the sleeves for holding a handkerchief, wallet, keys. Together the robes make for functional and comfortable meditation wear and we offer a choice of traditional and velcro ties.
We also offer custom sized robes, if you do not see your size here.
Start at the back of your neck, at the spine. Extend your arm, slightly bent. Measure down the outside of your arm to the ball of your wrist. Men, this is the measurement you use for dress shirts.
This is the measurement you usually use for trousers. Measure around your waist where you normally wear a belt.
Waist to Ankle
Begin your measurement from the top of where you wear your belt. Measure down the outside of your leg to the outside of your ankle -- to the ball of your ankle.
Neck to Waist
