Description
 
This is a vintage Japanese semi-formal kimono jacket that features design elements created with urushi - laquered threads. (See video below on Japanese lacquer.) The woven pattern includes traditional florals - orange blossoms (tachibana), irises, peonies (botan) and mums (kiku) as well as maple leaves (momiji) and bamboo (take).

The red elements were created with lacquered threads but the silver threads are actually thinly cut washi paper covered with silver leaf. There is a family crest at the neck created with tiny gold stitches.

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.
