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


A haori jacket that has only qualities! In addition to being in impeccable condition, its silk is incredibly soft to the touch. In a delicate pink, perfect for spring and summer, it combines several textile weawing techniques from Japan. One of these techniques draws an elegant and light pattern of flowers and foliage, kusahana 草花. The shibori technique (Japanese tie and dye) traces arabesques of foliage, a pattern called karakusa 唐草, very old, fluid and graceful. The haura, inner lining, features a magnificent twirling floral pattern in a circle, hanamarumon 花丸紋, a very old and and one of the most prestigious pattern because it connects us to the sun, hi 日and to harmony, wa 和. This is an absolutely gorgeous jacket!


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.
