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

This summer haori is a light, soft purple color with a woven woodgrain pattern. The way these haori are woven creates a wonderful wavy pattern that moves with the light, creating an additional "cooling" imagery of a breeze passing over a watery surface.

The lightweight, open weave allows air to pass through the layers as a way to cool the wearer on Japan's warm summer days. These haori are nearly sheer so you can see the kimono (or bathing suit, or sleeveless summer dress) that you're wearing underneath.

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.
