Summer Koromo


This is the summer robe for a Rinzai Zen monk or nun, and is worn over our lay robe set, or our ceremonial under-robes.

More than 10 yards of material goes into this intricate piece. Our Summer Koromo is custom-made in Chiffon polyester – the best fabric we’ve found yet to keep you cool in the summer heat.

The Summer Koromo comes with tie-backs in the sleeves.

Allow 8-10 weeks for delivery.

This item is intended only for Buddhist clergy and precept-holders. When ordering we ask that you provide the name of your Buddhist lineage and teacher. Thanks!
