"Urn City" Woman's Haori

Yes, those are stylized vases and urns dancing across the back - and appearing on the front left and right sleeve as well. This motif was quite popular in the 1960's and 1970's, and we think this haori is from that timeframe.

Gorgeous mottled dye work - pinks with yellows and oranges - with a "driving rain" diagonal orientation from the arashi shibori technique.

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.

Arashi shibori, also known as pole-wrapping shibori, creates a diagonal pattern that suggest the driving rain of a heavy storm. ("Arashi" is the Japanese word for storm.)

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.
