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 lovely pine bough motif in shades of purple and white that appear all over the jacket - not just on the back, as is common.  The design was made with the yuzen technique - a katagami stenciled pattern which is then brush painted.

There's an unusual family crest at the back of the neck  - one we haven't seen before in over 25 years - seems to be a pine cone? - which would be interesting combined with the pine bough motif!

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.
