"Vintage Diamond" Fancy Himo

Older, wider pair of himo with a reversed pattern of a diamond inside a circle. Plum purple (a bit darker than it looks in the photos) and a light gray color combination. Himo like this from the 1920s were wider and longer than the ones after WWII.

We have pre-tied this himo pair in a decorative square knot and added contemporary clasps to make it easier to attach to your haori. See last photo.

We distinguish these "fancy" ones because of their unusual weave, color, braiding, age, size, or something else!

These lovely decorative ties can be found on many vintage women's haori jackets. They are created on a special loom with a macrame or braiding technique, see video below. Typically six to seven inches long. They might be flat or rounded, soft or stiff, and often have a tasseled end -- but sometimes something uniquely different.

Modern uses include bookmarks, zipper pulls, key chains, and more!
