Vintage! Second-hand haori, jackets for Japanese kimono.


Welcome into the world of water with the Mizu-Mon 水紋 pattern! This immense stretch of water that surrounds Japan all around has inspirde this country with a great number of fantastic patterns, each more incredible than the next! At the heart of this silk canvas as blue as the ocean, Nami 波 the rising waves . And just like the sea spray that splashes in the air as it breaks off the crests of the waves, the white color dye splashes in droplets all over the entire fabric of the haori. An extremely lively interpretation of the Namishibuki motif 波飛沫, the sea spray that comes off the waves. Very graphic, modern and full of style! Note also the strings are a perfect mach to the motif of this haori. The haura, the inner lining, plunges us into a floral picture, a field of large flowers whose touches of blue take up the general tone of the jacket. Although these flowers are not identifiable, one cannot help but see the dynamic movement with which they are painted. Swirls of waves, swirls of flowers, or how to associate the elements of nature through the gestures of the artist. This jacket is in excellent condition and you can wear it with no problem!

The haori, a jacket worn over a Japanese kimono, is perhaps THE Japanese garment that TABITABIYA fell in love with the most! Cut in the same way as a kimono, the haori also shares its sumptuous fabrics and patterns traditions. But you don't need an obi to keep it closed. It is generally worn open or tied at the front with braided strings made in the same materials as the obijime that is attached to the obi. They are also very decorative. Its easy-to-wear length, its lightness, its more restrained or downright daring patterns make this authentic kimono jacket a super playful and stylish garment that you will never get tired of! There is no limit to how you can wear it because the haori goes absolutely perfectly and creatively with all clothes. For your moments of relaxation on the sofa, your reading times, to enjoy a cup of tea, to make you comfortable at home after your hard days of work, to bring an edgy touch to your jeans outfits, or a more chic note to your skirt or work outfits, for going out in the evening, for invitations to a wedding or a slightly chic aperitif party… Suitable for all your outings, the haori is the fashionable answer for all women, and the ways you can wear it are endless!!! The haori is THE ideal fashion item to add to your wardrobe and your life this so very unique touch of Japanese elegance! A simple and accessible way for all to enjoy the art of Japanese kimono.

In Tabitabiya's flea market, I only feature second-hand Japanese haori that melt my heart. They are not perfect but in good, or even very good condition. The photos will show you the small defects that some may have.
