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 is a woven wonder.  The silk jacquard features a tone-on-tone jumble of mid-century abstract elements (see photo). And on top of that is a series of folding fan shapes, each filled with a floral design in red, green, or silver. Elegant and classic with a retro, throw-back feel.  Likely from the 1950s or earlier.

A stitched paulownia crest at the neck.  Nice silk 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.
