"Rice Harvest" Man's Haori

A vintage formal man's kimono jacket (called a haori). The decorative lining on these formal jackets often reflects the hobbies, interests, or favorite myths of the original owner.

This haori lining features an earth-tone scene of the rice harvest back in the Edo Period. Note the large sheaves of grain, the farmers and other village figures, and the birds that seem to be overseeing the process.

Note that the frames of both scenes are shaped like large sheaths. Very clever.

Some light mottling on the back, see photos.

The outer jacket is a solid black with five family crests.

We display these men's haori inside out to reveal the lining - normally hidden from public view when worn, and only visible if glimpsed as it was taken off or hung up.

All of the stitching is hidden, so these jackets can normally be displayed or worn (in the West, at least) either way.
