Haori H8- kimono jacket hand-stitched by kimono makers in Japan Previously worn but exterior and interior are in good condition.
Chirimen silk crepe jacket with beautiful butterfly patterns in rainbow colors. I believe these are stencil dyed patterns. The background is a pale gold color. The lining is ivory silk jacquard with a wave pattern.
There are so spots from age and use, mainly on the lower sleeves (photos 10-12), the back right shoulder (photo 9) and the last photo shows tiny dye dots on the back neck area. Since the pattern is so busy they do blend in somewhat.
Features the traditional hanging sleeve of a kimono. Measures 50" from sleeve tip to tip. Length is 30" from back of neck and 32" including collar. Chest area is 46" Haori jackets do not wrap, are worn open. Hip area across the back is 24". Fits near size 8-10-12.
