This listing is for a vintage Japanese haori jacket that would have been worn on top of a vintage kimono on a chilly day.  Black haori like this are sometimes called "visiting haori" since they were worn for sem-formal occasions, like attending a community gathering.

This haori features traditional, auspicious elements: a taiko drum, a folding fan, and an imperial cart.  It seems to have been woven (see last photo with loupe glass showing a close up of the flat warp threads) but the pattern also seems to be floating above the black silk, as if it were embroidered.  

The elements sparkle in the light - beautifully and elegantly designed - a stunning party jacket.

Nice silk 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. An optional accessory is the haori himo - 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 option above. To choose a pair of our fancier himo, CLICK HERE.
