'Nagaike' Haori

  • 'Longevity' is represented by the hexagons on the pearly cream silk lining of this black vintage silk Haori. Hexagons are the symbol for tortoise who live until a fine age. The Jacquard flowers and leaves covering the entire jacket are so subtle they are almost a secret. Share it by standing in the light. A white family crest sits under the collar.

    Generally in excellent condition but the lining has some significant age spotting - particularly inside the sleeves - however when it is being worn someone would have to look very hard to find them!

    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.
