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 is a satiny silk in a deep coppery bronze color.  The patterning includes an interlocking chain motif on the back and front, with a woven window that overlooks a riverside village.  The houses have purple roofs, and the tree leaves are the same shade of berry.

The outer silk is black with five "wood sorrel" family crests - indicating it was intended for a very formal event where representing the family was imporant.

There are worn areas at the hips on the lining of the haori, which have been repaired and one case, very beautifully.  (See photos.) There is also a small paper tag stuck to the sleeve edging on one side which likely could be carefully removed.

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.
