'Shiraume' Haori

  • The 'White plum blossom' vintage, black silk Haori features large white plum flower motifs (and small circles) made with the Shibori 'tie dye' method. Inside are smaller flowers in colours representing both young green fruit and riper plums. The signs of early summer in Japan when the blossom groves grow fragrant in the warmth of the sun and new fruit are picked to make plum wine.

    The lining is pale pink silk with maple leaf motifs -bidding a fond farewell to autumn.

    The ties are pale aqua and deep rose pink but tuck away neatly when the jacket is worn open.

    Excellent condition externally. The lining has two tiny age spots but they cannot be seen when worn.

    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.
