"Three Friends" Japanique Jacket

A warm wine color background with a pattern of the "Three Friends" motif: pine for strength, bamboo for flexibility, and plum for beauty. This pattern also includes the crane (or maybe it's a goose?), with all elements lined up diagonally. There's a slight texture to the jacquard weave.

Don't miss the secret pocket, it's hidden in the right front panel seam!
Each Japanique Jacket starts with a vintage michiyuki, which is a narrow jacket with snap closures that was meant to be worn on top of a kimono. Most vintage michiyuki won't fit larger frames, so we modified the traditional garment slightly (removed the snaps, tacked the panels back to create lapels) to create a roomier, open, flowing jacket that can fit sizes 12-18 or possibly larger. These are all one-of-a-kind jackets, so sizing will vary slightly. See video below on the various types of kimono jackets.
