Description
 
"Painted Plum" Woman's Haori

Fantastic combination of techniques - the woven design features a plum (ume) tree in gold with a tsubo (sword hilt) motif and what seems to be a soft kata (sword) cover behind it. The white blossoms, however are painted (!). The design continues around on the front left side.

The weaving is called urushi, where some of the threads were covered in gold, though traditionally the metallic was actually red lacquer.

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.

We do offer haori himo - the little woven ties that are hooked to the little fabric loops that you'll find on at the mid-front of the haori - but they are sold separately. We'll select one that goes with this haori if you pick the Add A Himo Pair ($5) option above. To choose a pair of our fancier himo, CLICK HERE.
