A very high quality, rare piece from the late Taisho, early Showa era Japan, this kimono jacket of soft, drapey silk is masterfully handwoven through with gold and silver threads, and with uncommon cut velvet to form a pattern of flowing scrolls and tassels. Black crepe is a perfect base for the hints of metallics, showcasing the subtle textures in this large, subtle, yet bold design. Closes at center front with handwoven white and black 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.
