This vintage Japanese haori jacket would have been worn on top of a vintage kimono on a chilly day.

The design features a leaf pattern that emerges from vines that cross to create a mosaic effect in the background. We believe that the vines and leaves were applied with a stencil but each element is outlined with a fine black line that we think was painted by hand. Look closely for the stencil repeat and compare the elements to see the kind of very, very slight variation that suggests hand work.

We can't be sure if it is a silk or blend, but the fabric is soft and feels natural. The lininng is a silky synthetic, and basting stitches on the sleeves and collar suggest that it has never been worn.

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.

Going to display this haori? Add one of our display rods (see color options above).
