'Unki' Haori

  • This vintage, black silk 'Movement of Clouds' Haori is covered in a captivating swirling jacquard cloud designs incorporating floral and diamond motifs. The Japanese believe the deities reside in the clouds which would lend a certain spiritual essence to this garment - it is at the very least rather ethereal looking!

    The lining is cream silk with an attractive, somewhat geometrical floral pattern with a fine gold line through parts - likely stylised wisteria as the lilac coloured flower popularly symbolises the purple cloud which deities might descend to earth upon... So we're not exactly sure of the logistics on that one - but what we do know is that this haori is both stylish and elegant. And if it swathes you in supernatural powers of attraction there's no need to thank us.

    The woven ties are made of cream silk and silver thread - note that they tuck away nicely when worn as an open jacket. There is a small family crest on the back beneath the collar - hand-stitched in silver silk thread.

    Immaculate condition.

    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.
