Description
 
This is a vintage Japanese semi-formal kimono jacket that features an elaborately woven design of a red bridge arching over a little boat on a silver stream. The design is balanced by two slightly smaller mountain scenes woven on the sleeve and lower left side. The red elements were woven with urushi - red lacquered threads (see video below on Japanese lacquer) - but the silver and green elements might be woven with finely cut washi paper covered with color and silver (or platinum) leaf. Pretty pink floral 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.
