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


An intense and warm color for this e-baori 絵羽織, a haori that paints a picture for us. Here, what is this beautiful image? It is that of plum blossoms on the branches of their tree Eda-Ume 枝梅 tree in a sumptuous movement that unfolds alln across the silk fabric used for this haori. The white and pink color of the flowers is here symbolized by shiny threads of a different color. The brilliance of the threads brings back to us the magnificence of the flowers in the omeshi fabric tradition of Niigata Prefecture which used gold and silver lamé threads. the haura, the inner lining, offers us to see another flower of which we do not see very well what it could be. On a white background that contrasts sharply with the ocher of the haori, this floral image reminds us of the Majolica Omeshi マジョリカ-inspired patterns, patterns of pottery from the island of Majorca. 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.
