'Ginhana' Haori

  • This black, vintage silk Haori shows off large 'silver flower' motifs - we believe the subject is the frilled petal Iris which blooms in late spring in Japan when the days are warm and the skies are clear.

    Bold spheres cover the cream silk lining. The short tie on the front lapels is a braid of cream and pale blue silk hinting at the sun and the sky. The small hand stitched family crest on the background is in gold thread. Gorgeous.

    Perhaps wear as an open jacket over a t-shirt with jeans or a black top and flowing wide leg pants or instantly glam up a simple black dress by tying at the front or leaving open.

     

    Great condition - slight age discolouration on lining .

    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.
