A very high quality piece from Taisho era Japan, this kimono jacket of soft drapey silk is masterfully handwoven through with gold, silver, and lacquered threads to form a pattern of rock lions, called shishi, and temari balls, a type of folk art from Japan. Hand dyed with a fading effect between contrasting golden yellow and purple, the silk lining is similarly beautifully printed with calligraphy and soft, traditional patterns. Closes at center front with handwoven magenta and silver ties.
This haori is great for pairing with any outfit to add interest, culture and colour, and can even be worn reversed to display the lining! Treat it as a cardigan with shorts and a tee in the summer, or pair with formal shirts, dresses, or even a soft turtleneck.
