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 a set of woven elements that seem precious.  The weaving is very tight and masterful - done no doubt by a very experienced artisan. The design includes two ornately decorated lacquer gift boxes on the back side.  See the close up photo to appreciate the fine detail of the weave - the flat, gold "threads" are actually paper coated with gold leaf then cut into thin strips for weaving.  Quite a process!

A small version of the design appears at the front lower left of the jacket.

Nice white 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.
