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


What did I like about this haori? Well, that's the romantic feel about it! I loved the color, this intense blue, going almost to gray, and which nevertheless remains very soft with an old-fashioned overall impression, very close to the traditional color Usu-Hana-Iro, the pale color of the flower. And the way it is enhanced by bands of gold or brown colors, like friezes on a 19th century wallpaper is most charming and delicate. This haori is above all a discreet tribute to Kiku 菊, the chrysanthemum , the Japanese autumn flower! The haura, too, is adorned with this beautiful, highly symbolic flower, in a very traditional but just as fine, discreet and seductive way. Throughout the waves of mist rising above the water , chrysanthemum flowers all pink and green. Tatewaku 立涌, those undulating vertical lines is a very old motif formerly reserved for the nobility and highly symbolic signifying us the possibility of elevating ourselves. 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.
