This is a gorgeous vintage Haori kimono jacket made in 100% silk with the Shibori tie-dye method. This Haori jacket is dyed in the form of beautiful undulating mountain scenery. The designs on each of the panels of the Haori jacket are continuous and unbroken.
The result is a lovely piece of textile art! The Haori is a traditional Japanese hip- or thigh-length kimono-style jacket, worn over a kimono. The Haori does not close like the kimono, but is worn open or kept closed by a string connecting the lapels. However, it can be worn over Western clothing as well. Shibori is a Japanese dyeing technique that typically involves folding, twisting or bunching cloth and binding it, then dyeing it in indigo.The word means to wring, squeeze, or press. What is used to bind the cloth will resist the dye, leaving patterns that alternate between the vivid color of the dye and the white fabric underneath. The sleeves are 25 inches long and 20 inches wide.
The Haori jacket is 31 inches long and 11.5 inches wide when the front panels are folded together. The han-eri (easy collar) shown underneath the Haori is not included.
This jacket is from my personal collection. I just love the ombre pink, the nostalgic mountain scenery, and the bright mood of this piece!Truly a brilliant vintage find! Thank you for looking and feel free to ask me any questions!
