Description
 
"Raspberry Retro" Fancy Himo

A wider and longer pair of himo, suggesting these are older (pre-WWII?) than the more contemporary ones we usually get. A pink raspberry color with a grayish white stripe down the center. Very tight tapestry weave. Colors are reversed on the back.

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!
