This listing is for a vintage Japanese haori jacket that would have been worn on top of a vintage kimono on a chilly day. The retro feel of the patterning suggests it might be from the 1940s or 1950s.

The design of this haori included many layers of patterning and technique. The background might at first look to have the crackle lines of a wax resist (rozome in Japanese), but look closely to see that the shibori (resist, binded dye technique) was actually used to create both the grid pattern of black circles and the thin lines that connect them.

You'll also see abstract shapes in pumkin, teal, and greens behind the shibori elements. And the background is a light yellow.

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 - the 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 ($5) option above. To choose a pair of our fancier himo, CLICK HERE.
