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

A very warm brown with a nice earth effect for a yuki-mochi-shiba, snow-covered grass pattern, 雪持ち芝, a very old and celebrated pattern since the early days of Japanese poetry. We love the simplicity of this ancestral motif and the pretty way it dots the back of the haori, thus depicting a grass field landscape that plays on a varied variation of brown tones. And above all, the haura, inner lining, with a beautiful chrysanthemum kiku 菊 flower motif, is blue. The tint of this blue color offers a color contrast that blends perfectly with the brown of the haori and enhances it in the most beautiful way. I like the way Japan knows how to combine colors and surprise us! Apart from two small dots on the haura where the silk is a little yellowed, this haori 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.
