'Akameru' Haori

  • This vintage 'Blushing' silk beauty is a teensy bit embarrassed as she has an age spot on her front sleeve. She is a deep dusky pink and off white with broad brushstrokes of faint gold and silver regularly running through the stunning authentic shibori (tie dyed) 100% silk material. The lining is pale pink and cream silk and has some age spotting

    She's probably not pristine enough to wear anywhere too fancy but if you love her we'd suggest having her repaired (from the matching internal lining) and wearing over some Jeans and a t-shirt she'll not look too shabby at all! Or remove the sleeves to transform it into a soft, feminine vest.

    As there are no spots on the back the Haori it would look great hanging as wall art and of course could be used for making beautiful cushions for your bed or lounge.

     

    Condition - Feels great but showing some age and please see above re spot on sleeve

    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.
