This listing is for a summer version of the traditional Japanese haori jacket, meant to be layered on top of a kimono.

This summer haori is blue and unpatterned - a classic jacket to accent a summer dress or provide poolside cover up. Notice the basting stitches on the sleeve and collar - these are typically removed before wearing, which suggests that this haori was never worn.

The lightweight, open weave allows air to pass through the layers as a way to cool the wearer on Japan's warm summer days.

Firm, woven polyester fabrics were popular for this style because the stiffer fabric keeps the jacket away from the underlayer, allowing more air to circulate. The stiffness can be softened with a gentle washing if desired.
