Haori R15- kimono jacket hand-stitched by kimono makers in Japan Previously worn but exterior and interior are in very good condition.
If you are a purple lover like me you will love this one.
Soft and smooth silk jacket with allover kanoko (fawn dot) shibori dyeing mingled with wonderful patterns which are familiar to me but I'm at a loss to identify! These designs are all tied by hand to resist the dye and then released.
The color is a deep purple and it remains strong with age. There are a few minor pulls in the fabric.
Lined in a soft faux shibori print pink and red hemp print. There is a spot on the lining near the underarm and next to it is an area of wear. I wouldn't be too worried about it because it is hidden from view and not in an area with a lot of stress.
Features the traditional hanging sleeve of a kimono. Measures 50" from sleeve tip to tip. Length is 29" from back of neck and 31" including collar. Chest area is 44". Haori jackets do not wrap, are worn open. Hip area across the back is 24". Fits near size 8-10-12.
