"Butterfly Crest" Woman's Summer Haori

Layering is so important for kimono-wearing - even in the hot and humid days of summer in Japan. Vintage summer haori typically have an open weave that allows cooling air to flow between the layers, and often have a design woven on the back.

This summer haori is silk and soft (most summer haori are synthetic with a firmer texture), probably meant for a more formal occasion. It's unlined and lightweight, perfect for those evenings when you need something over your shoulders. A subtle woven pattern of small waves and a single butterfly crest at the neck. Basting stitches on the sleeves suggest this haori hasn't been worn and they should be removed before wearing.

These light weight haori jackets are great to throw on when you want something over your shoulders as you move from the summer heat into an air conditioned restaurant, theater, or office. They're also modest cover ups at the beach or poolside. Even though they tend to be dark colors, the open weave is really cooling. We like them over a little black dress for a night on the town.
