"Caribbean Colors" Woman's Haori

Explore the colorful beauty of ocean beaches when wearing or displaying this unique kimono jacket. Tropical blue, green, and yellow with a floral design nestled in angled "arashi" (stormy) shibori that is meant to resemble driving rain. Marbled pastel lining.

Haori do not cross over or tie with a sash, like a kimono does - they are meant to be worn open to reveal a bit of what is worn beneath.

Shibori is "Japanese tie-dye", where an artisan stitches along a stenciled image on the fabric, pulling the threads tightly to create a resist. The fabric is then dyed and when the threads are released, the pattern is revealed. There are dozens of shibori techniques, with the most common these days called kaneko (referring to the spots on a fawn), where an often elaborate pattern is created by hundreds of tiny dots. Kyoto is famous for this kaneko style. Watch the video below to learn more.
