Description
 
This is a vintage Japanese semi-formal kimono jacket that features a festive jacquard pattern of floral-edged medallions. Five of the woven medallions were chosen for embellishment by an embroiderer who covered the design in gold or silver threads. So much hand work! Four of the chosen medallions feature florals but one - just one - features the magic mallet (a buddhist symbol for prosperity).

A family crest was made with tiny gold stitches at the back of the neck. Don't miss the fun pink 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.
