"Tale of Genji" Woman's Vintage Japanese Haori

This is a vintage Japanese haori kimono jacket for women. 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.

The imagery is hand-embroidered with elements taken from the famous novel "The Tale of Genji": a kimono-clad woman that might represent Mursaki Shikibu, (the author) and a court official who could be Genji. There's also an imperial treasure cart, suggesting the imperial household.

A tomato-red color, a medium weight, flouncy silk, with basting on the sleeves which suggests the jacket was never worn.
