This charming blouse like jacket would work well over a light summer slip dress or teamed with jeans.
Note - Please Read before purchase:
Kimono and Haori are generally made, for wearing on smaller framed, not too tall bodies - however if worn as an open jacket there is generally enough room in the sleeve area and in length to be worn by several sizes larger and taller than originally intended. However there is no guarantee it will sit perfectly on your body shape. Let's call it freestyle!
As we take every measure to ensure you are advised of the correct sizing prior to purchase - we ask you to please be aware that we don't refund for garments chosen in error. Please don't hesitate to contact us with any queries regarding dimensions before purchase.
All vintage and antique kimono and haori were hand made. Therefore you may see some loose, temporary stitches around edges of sleeves, hems and collars on our kimonos. These stitches, called shitsuke ito, are kept in place to assist the valuable kimono in retaining its shape and alignment. In Japan the stitches are normally removed before wearing then restitched again after cleaning and before storage, for the same reasons as above. We like the look of authenticity they bring so feel free to retain them if you like, or remove them before wearing.

Dry Clean Only
Ideally you should clean your silk kimono as little as possible to keep it in top condition. Please try to avoid using lotions or oily perfumes when you wear it. Also make sure your hands are clean as sticky or greasy fingers and Kimono don't play well together!
Air your kimono after wearing by hanging on a kimono hanger or extra wide coat-hanger.
