Description
 
This sweet summer haori features pink maple leaves (momiji) against a black background. The pattern is reversed on the inside but the jacket is not reversible because of the seaming. Some leaves are woven in silver so they sparkle, and the double-weave technique produces a slightly iridescent "waverying" when the fabric moves. It's a bit stiff (like new) but would soften up with a gentle washing.

Layering is so important for kimono-wearing - even in the hot and humid days of summer in Japan. Vintage summer haori typically have an open weave that allows cooling air to flow between the layers, and often have a design woven on the back.

These light weight haori jackets are great to throw on when you want something over your shoulders as you move from the summer heat into an air conditioned restaurant, theater, or office. They're also modest cover ups at the beach or poolside. Even though they tend to be dark colors, the open weave is really cooling. We like them over a little black dress for a night on the town.
