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


A magnificent example of a haori dyed using the shibori 絞りtechnique where the patterns on the fabric are made using threads tied or inserted into the fabric. This technique requires a high level of craftsmanship. The color is warm and deep, and the marbling effect achieved through the magic of shibori gives it a velvety look. In this flamboyant and lively wine-colored sky, clouds Kumo 雲 are woven into the silk. Then, pockets of white clearings drawn by the pattern of Sakagumo-Dori 逆雲どり allow us to see other clouds which are white. The haura, the inner lining, opens the sky to us on a world of autumn and winter on earth, made of water and flowers and plants. Amidst the gentle eddies of the water, plum blossoms Ume 梅 and chrysanthemums flowers Kiku 菊emerge. To keep them company, another symbol of Japanese autumn: Kaede 楓, maple leaves. With the exception of spots where where the silk is a little yellowed by time in the inner lining, 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.
