Description
 

This vintage Japanese haori jacket would have been worn on top of a vintage kimono on a chilly day. The retro feel of the patterning suggests it might be from the 1950s or 1960s.

We see a 1950s Formica tabletop in the patterning of this vintage haori. We can't find a "repeat" of the pattern, which suggests that all of these lines were painted by hand. Short brushstrokes of teal, indigo, black, and a soft lilac color cross each other and cover every inch of fabric. On top of the colors, thousands of silver speckles. Great jacket for over jeans - wear it to your next party and get a conversation started. Fun lining.

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.

All of the stitching is hidden (since it was hand-sewn) so technically these haori jackets are reversible. Sometimes the lining is as pretty as the outer jacket!

We do offer haori himo - the little woven ties that are hooked to the little fabric loops that you'll find on at the mid-front of the haori - but they are sold separately. We'll select one that goes with this haori if you pick the Add A Himo Pair ($5) option above. To choose a pair of our fancier himo, CLICK HERE.
