Antique Japanese Black Kimono Silk Formal Haori

The front of this lightweight crepe silk kimono jacket is all black. Woven on the back are three beautiful mountain scenes (similar to woodblock print scenes) with delicate details woven in shimmering metallic and lacquered silver, dark orange and evergreen threads. The soft light coral silk lining appears to have golden flecks applied.

Haori is a three-quarter length coat or jacket worn over kimono (both women’s and men’s). In the center of the back is one white family crest (mon) with a paulownia motif. Having one-five family crests on a Japanese garment meant that it was not worn every day, but only on special formal or semi-formal occasions. Haori often has a unique inner lining. Today some people like to wear them as jackets; even inside-out. This vintage silk kimono jacket is not designed to overlap or close in the center, if worn. If desired, you could add your own closure. Others use them as beautiful textile wall art. Such superior textile artwork would add a lovely touch to home décor.

Age: Meiji Period (1868-1912).

Condition: excellent outside and inside; no holes or spots.

Size: 47” across the top; 36” top to bottom. Sleeve: W-12”, L-24”.
