This listing is for a pair of vintage haori himo ties unlike any others we've seen. The tassel ends seem almost unfinished and unraveled, but we think this is deliberate. The himo cords are much longer than usual - suggesting it might be a man's himo pair, but the cords are much thinner than what men typically wear. The "fringe" is soft and silky - you'll just want to pet it when you wear it!

Haori himo are the braided or woven cords that tie together at the front of a traditional haori jacket. They are hooked into the little loops on either side of the front collar that every haori has.

They are typically six to seven inches long and about half an inch wide, but the variety of designs is quite amazing. Haori himo have many uses even if you don't have a haori jacket: bookmarks, zipper pulls, key chains, and more! (See video below for more examples!)

Haori himo - sometimes referred to as kumihimo - are created on a special loom with a macrame or braiding technique - see the video below on how this is done.
