Description
 
This is a vintage Japanese semi-formal kimono jacket that features a traditional bamboo pattern woven into the black silk. Some of the bamboo leaves are woven with urushi - red lacquered - silk threads that add a soft touch of color to the design. See video below on urushi (Japanese lacquer).

There's a white paulownia crest at the neck, and cute umbrellas on the lining. The white basting stitches at the sleeve edges suggest that the haori was never worn, since these stitches are the finishing touches added by the tailor before it leaves the shop.

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.
