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


An atmosphere of elegance and luxury for a haori made in the tradition of Omeshi textiles , from Niigata prefecture, and which enjoyed incomparable success from their birth, in the Showa era, in 1959. The brilliance of the golden lamé threads , silver and red, depicts the magnificence of Japanese autumn with its two most prominent symbols: Kiku 菊, the chrysanthemum flower and Momiji 紅葉, the reddened maple leaves . They are accompanied by another major arcana of the Wagara world 和柄, the world of Japanese patterns, thepine tree Matsu 松, here declined in the version of a pattern that bears the name of "Wakamatsu" 若松, the young pine tree. This impression of wealth and luxury is enhanced by a magnificent wave pattern Aranami 荒波 movement that unties with force to form ridges under the force of the water.

And it is in the haura, the inner lining, that we find the influence of the patterns of the pottery of the island of Majorca from the tradition of Majolica Omeshi マジョリカfabrics that reflected the fascination of the time for the West. 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.
