The haori is a short kimono that is worn open. More original and refined than a jacket, it is the assurance of being classy for any occasion.
This vintage haori is handmade in Shibori silk. Shibori is a traditional Japanese tye and die folding technique from the 8th century creating clear embossed patterns on the fabric : Each small point was made with a tied bond around a small seed… It is a very "haute couture" piece of work !
Pure silk handmade one-off piece (dry clean)
Matsukawa-bishi (pine bark) pattern
