Women's vintage, shibori Haori kimono jacket - red-orange bokashi shibori with floral, maple and stream

$32.00

The exterior of this beautiful, vintage haori jacket is in good, wearable condition however there are a few flaws. Please read the description carefully to learn about these flaws. This jacket is being offered at a discount price due to these flaws.

Haori jackets are generally worn over kimono but these jackets also look beautiful over a simple pair of jeans. The jacket would also look beautiful with a dress. It is the perfect weight for a cover-up on early or late summer evenings. This jacket does not have closure ties. Although haori are often worn without ties, ties (Himo) can be purchased and added to the loops on the jacket.

Haori can also be used as decoration for your house. They can be hung on a wall for a beautiful accent.

This haori is created out of silk and also has a silk lining. Beautiful red-orange and orange colored shibori (tie-dying) covers the entire jacket. The shibori creates a unique and wonderful texture on the silk. Shibori was also used to create a floral, maple leaf and stream design. The design is on the left lower front, left sleeve front, right sleeve back and back of the jacket.

The silk used to create this haori is a rinzu (damask). A woven pattern of sayagata (key fret) and mums can be seen when the light reflects off the silk of the non-shibori areas.

**Please note that there are some flaws on the exterior of this jacket. The largest flaw is seen in the left most picture in the 6th photo. A close up of this mark is seen in the 7th photo. This dark mark is located on the left, back sleeve. You can also see this spot in the first photo, if you look carefully.

**There are also some darker areas around the dyed, floral designs. Two of these areas can be seen in the 2 right-most pictures in the 6th photo. Arrows are pointing to these darker areas. These darker spots area due to an error in the dying process. These spots are present on nearly all of the red-orange areas of floral and stream designs.

The 9th photo shows the color of the jacket most accurately. Crayola brand crayons were placed in the photo for a color comparison.The color is graduated (bokashi) therefore the color of the haori has many hues of red and orange. The silk has a slight sheen so that the color will appear darker or lighter depending on the reflection of the light.

The lining was created out of a creme colored silk with a printed floral and geometric design in a pink hue. The 10th photo shows the color of the lining most accurately. Please note that there are a few spots on the lining. These can be seen right near the tip of the white crayon. These spots will not be noticeable when the jacket is worn. The lining does have a yellow tint. This was most likely caused by some age associated yellowing of the lining.

Please read the dimensions to determine if you will find the size desirable for you.
