'Aka Hana' Haori

  • The gorgeous 'Red Flowers' vintage silk haori from Kyoto features regal red Chrysanthemums against a black background, on both the front and back. Some of the flowers feature hand stitched embroidery over the central disks which add texture and depth to the pattern. 

    The lining on this beauty is in pale gold silk with subtle floral motifs and the ties are braided silk in the same colour. 

    This elegant piece would look as magical tied closed over a dress as it would worn as an open jacket - teamed with jeans and a t'shirt or trousers and a blouse.  Aka Hana also makes a striking talking piece when hung on the wall as textile art.  

     

    Pristine 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.
