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 an understated beauty.  The design of a traditional zen stone garden - with cragged rocks surrounded by finely raked circles of gravel - in red outline.  The design  stretches across the backside and onto the front left panel and left sleeve front.  Red against black gives a softer, subtle feel and makes one look closer, deeper, to discern the pattern.

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.
