VINTAGE LATE '60s / EARLY '70s QUILTED WRAP ROBE MADE IN HONG KONG IN SUMATRA
These wonderful robes are the ideal robe to wear when you want to look glamorous for a special evening at home or entertaining someone.
Although these fabulous robes are quilted, they are light as a feather & will keep you warm without a lot of weight plus they are washable & come out of the washer & dryer looking beautiful.
These quilted robes from Hong Kong have stood the test of time & are as beautiful now as they were when they were made. Most of them look as though they have never been worn & this vintage robe is in very good condition after all of these years. They are just exquisite vintage quilted robes.
What is so great about these vintage quilted robes from Hong Kong is that each of them has a different theme design. This one has huge flowers, vines & a leaf design. Some have koi fish, sea horses, paisley, leaves & buds, others have chrysanthemums, roses or other types of flowers, etc. Each one is different.
This vintage robe is in a fabric that is silky smooth & expensive as the robe was when it was new. The inside of these robes are finished with beautiful workmanship & have no exposed seams & are as beautiful as the outside of the robe
The robe is an easy wrap style with 3 large cloth love knot buttons & large cloth loops at the waist along with a large cloth-covered snap for closure. The color is rich & dark in a bittersweet chocolate shade called Sumatra. I have lightened many of the photos so the detail can be seen but the robe is the color of the full length photo. The entire robe is quilted with the lovely roses design with more intricate quilting around the neck, down the front, at the waist & at the ends of the sleeves. Love knots on the barrel cuffs which have expensive bound buttonholes but 1 button is missing on one cuff. That could easily be replaced with a button or just forget it as the fabric is so dark, one cannot notice it.
Matching piping trim around the neckline, ends of the sleeves & down the entire length of the front of the robe. Pockets in the side seams. There is a set-in waistband with heavier quilting of flowers edged with more piping. Lovely silky matching lining with no exposed seams. I could also see hand stitching on the lining is one will never see nowadays..
Just a lovely vintage robe made in Hong Kong adorned with roses, vines & leaves in Sumatra.
By: Tag is missing - Made in Hong Kong
Size: No size tag but I wear a size 10 & it fit me & will fit smaller sizes but not larger but go by the measurements for a good fit
Bust: Appx 45
Waist: 33 - if the waist is too tight, there is 5“ of fabric before the edge of the waist so the buttons could be moved over several inches to make the waist larger
Hips: 55 but leave some room for movement
Fabric: 100% silky poly
Condition: Very good – some small imperfections which are buttons need tightening, 1 button missing on one cuff tiny bit of wear on the edge of a cuff & former owner put 2 cloth hooks at the waist but the “eye” have disappeared. Could just snip those off. Very small imperfections and I have reduced the robe drastically for those.
We examine each item carefully and note any imperfections, but unless an item is said to be new, please don't expect it to be perfect & even some new items have small imperfections. I will always state in the description if there are any imperfections & I never do repairs but leave them to others who are better able to do them than me as that is not my expertise.
Please remember that unless specified all items have been used and will show varying signs of use or wear. We always list the obvious imperfections to the best of our abilities. However, some slight imperfections that will not show or affect wearing or using the item may slip by or not be considered worth mentioning.
Vintage nightgowns & peignoirs may be delicate so I do not wash them in the machine. I wash them in lukewarm water with Woolite or some other mild soap, then rinse & hang dripping wet in the shower.
Since these are vintage items, a bit of extra care needs to be taken with them so they remain beautiful & I definitely would never put a vintage nightgown or a peignoir in the dryer as it would ruin it.
The items are sold as we find them. We do not dry clean, launder, alter or repair vintage clothing and they should be cleaned or washed upon arrival. Please make your selection carefully & check the measurements as there is no return on clothing or other items.
