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.

The design combines a seigaiha (overlapping coins or wave motif) with florals that obscure and extend past the rounded, triangular shapes. Soft pastel colors. 

The patterning was created with the yuzen technique, as evidenced by the white outlining of each element (though some outlines have been covered with gold leaf). 

Nice crane design on the 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.
