Women's vintage, unused, black Haori kimono jacket - ume plum blossoms and stream

$42.00

This beautiful, vintage Haori jacket is unused and still has its basting - stay stitches. These are the white stitches around the collar,sides and on the sleeve edges. They can easily be removed before wearing.

**The exterior of this jacket is in perfect shape however the lining and lower, inside portion of the black silk has flaws. Please read the description carefully to learn about these flaws**

Haori jackets are generally worn over kimono but these jackets also look beautiful over a simple pair of jeans. They have a nice weight to them and will keep the fall chill away. The jacket would also look beautiful with a dress. This jacket does not have closure ties. Although haori are often worn without ties, ties (Himo) can be purchased and added to the loops on the jacket.

Haori can also be used as decoration for your house. They can be hung on a wall for a beautiful accent.

Beautiful, buttery soft, black silk was used to create the outside of the jacket. The black silk has a matte finish with a subtle sheen and is of a medium weight.  A printed design of branches and red-orange, pink and white ume (plum blossoms) was created on the back of the jacket and the left front, side. Leaves and a flowing stream were woven out of black and black-green threads creating shimmery accents throughout the printed ume. Some of the blossoms are accented with a gold-metallic colored paint.

The last photo shows the color of the jacket most accurately. Crayola brand crayons were placed in the photo for a color comparison.

Please enlarge the photos to see the colors and texture of the silk.

The bottom, inside portion of the black silk (lower jacket lining) has some flaws that appear to have been created when the jacket pattern was dyed. These spots are the same color as some of the flower buds. These spots can be seen in the 7th photo. The 8th photo shows a closeup of two of the largest of these spots. These flaws are only seen on the interior of the jacket so they should not be noticeable when the jacket is worn.

The jacket has an white colored upper lining, which I believe is synthetic, that features a white, pale pink and pale blue floral design. **Please note that there are flaws on the lining** These flaws appear to be pulls or small holes. A small section of these flaws can be seen in the 9th photo. There are 3 pairs of these holes running down the center back of the lining and then the 2 pairs (shown in the photo) that are on the left portion of the lining. These flaws will not be seen when the jacket is worn.

Please read the dimensions to determine if you will find the size desirable for you.  I am 5 feet and 3 inches tall and the jacket falls about three inches (7.6cm) above my knees.

Length of jacket: about 32 inches (81.3 cm)

Total width of jacket with sleeves: 50.25 inches (127.6 cm)**

Length of sleeves(how far the sleeves fall): 19 7/8 inches (50.5cm)

**Stand with your arms spread out and have a friend measure from one wrist, across your shoulders and to your other wrist. This will help determine where the sleeve will fall on your wrist.

I believe that the pictures show a good representation of the fabric colors however, please remember that colors may look different on your monitor. This is a vintage item so there may be small blemishes or marks others than those noted in the description. This item has been stored for many years so there may be a slight storage smell although I do not notice one. Items can be hung in the shade to remove odor. Dry cleaning is recommended.
