This is a vintage Japanese semi-formal kimono jacket that features an elaborately designed garden scene on the back. Dozens of florals and leaves obstruct the view of a garden hut nestled next to a bridge over a small stream. Deep pink accents were painted on some of the plum blossom petals.

Versions of the scene appear on the front left sleeve and lower front as well. The design was created with the yuzen technique, where the scene is usually stenciled with a resist paste, then the fabric was dyed black and the resist removed to reveal the scene. See video below for how yuzen is done, though this pattern was not stenciled, it was drawn free-hand.

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.
