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

I'm usually not a big fan of brown but, there, I couldn't resist! I simply loved the warmth given off by the shade of this beautiful deep brown color that is neither dull nor harsh. The very graphic lines are absolutely modern, and the combination of colors extremely elegant and refined. The lines are drawn with wax, wax that you can feel under your fingers, enjoying the feel of the roketsuzomeろうけつ染め technique typical of Kyoto and which, when the wax is allowed to crack, produces this very special effect that I like very much very much!! The haura, inner lining, of great simplicity, offers us to see two large floral motifs: the paulownia kiri 桐 and the chrysanthemum kiku 菊, which bring together two seasons, spring and autumn. 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.
