This is a vintage kimono jacket, called a haori, made for a man. The lining of men's haori jackets often depict a scene or motif that was of special interest to the original owner.

The lining of this man's kimono jacket features a brush-painted scene of several buildings enclosed in a simple fence, as viewed from between large trees from a nearby hillside.  The brushtrokes and composition mean this is truely "wearable art" but it would also make a striking wall display.

The outer silk is black with five "arrowroot" family crests - indicating it was intended for a very formal event where representing the family was imporant. There are a few slight, scattered blemishes on the black silk (see last photo) and a small one on the front lining as indicated.

We display these haori inside out to feature the lining when it is unique. All of the stitching is hidden, so these jackets can normally be displayed or worn (in the West, at least) either way.

If you need a display rod to hang your purchase, we offer 60" wooden rods in four colors - see tab below.

See video below for how haori are worn these days.
