Women's Haori

What is a haori?

A Japanese haori jacket (sometimes called haori coat or haori kimono) is worn over a kimono to create a kimono haori outfit that adds warmth and elegance. Women’s haori are a popular fashion trend and can be styled in creative and modern ways. Kimono haori offer a loose, flowing silhouette – they are not belted but a haori himo tie can be added to the front collar for a more finished look. (Both haori and haoris are acceptable plurals for the word!)

Each jacket in our Haori For Women collection is one-of-a-kind, so if you see one you like, don’t wait!

Remember, when you buy anything from Kyoto Kimono, you also gain access to Nancy, the owner and lifelong student of all things kimono. She has a deep passion and more than 25 years' experience selling kimono - and is still eager-as-ever to share that with her customers. So if you have any questions or want to learn more about the history and significance of your purchase, Nancy is more than happy to 'talk kimono' with you.
