This vintage Japanese haori jacket would have been worn on top of a vintage kimono on a chilly day.

The design has a batik feel, but the patterning was created with a rice paste rather than wax. (Rather than the wax crackle marks seen with rozome (Japanese batik), we see a mottlng in the brushstrokes where bit of the dye was allowed through the rice paste.)

The colors are soft and flowing, as is the patterning itself. Brushstrokes done in a light yellow stream across a watercolor-like background where coral and light green-gray intermix. Really a very lovely jacket.

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.
