Haori himo are the braided or woven cords that tie together at the front of a traditional haori jacket. Men's haori himo are longer, wider, and with bigger tassle ends than women's haori himo.

This listing is for a pair of man's formal haori himo ties in a light cream color (not white), suggesting it was meant for a formal occasion, possibly a wedding in the 1950s.  (These days, grooms wear white haori himo with large pompoms instead of tassels.)

Men's haori usually come pre-tied, as shown. This special knot is difficult to master, so little hooks are used to attach the himo to the loops on the haori front collar without having to untie it. We don't recommend untying it.

Men's haori himo are typically 13-15 inches long and about three-quarters of an inch wide, but this can vary by a few centimeters.

Haori himo - sometimes referred to as kumihimo - are created on a special loom with a macrame or braiding technique.  See video below for how these are made.
