The Lahja dressing gown is a casually straight-cut unisex garment.
The Finnish word ‘lahja’ means ‘gift’ and, as the name suggests, these dressing gowns are a great gift either for your friend or yourself!
There are two versions; a shorter knee-length gown with cropped sleeves, and a longer version that extends to mid-leg and has full-length sleeves.
Both variations feature large patch pockets and a belt fastening.
