Description:
  • A magnificent silk nagoya obi, with large mums and gold in the weave

  • A Taiko-gara obi. Taiko-gara obis have a pattern only on the taiko (rear ‘knot’) part and centre front of the sash part. It's also called santsuu obi, which means “30% partially -patterned". The rest of the obi is plain.
  • Obi should not be washed

  • Made and bought in Japan

  • The Japanese take great pains to store their traditional garments with the utmost care, which is why they stay in such exceptional condition. Some of my Japanese garments have large, white stitching (shitsuke) round the edges. The Japanese put these stitches in to keep the edges flat during long periods of storage, these stitches just get pulled out before wearing the garment

  • Obi knots, whether on pre-shaped, 2-part obi or on one piece obi, are held in place using an obiage an an obijime and, if a taiko style knot, padded with an obi makura, all bought separately, although one can improvise with those items


  • Please be aware that different monitors display colour slightly differently. The colour in the photos and descriptions is a guide only

    Additional Information
    One must bear in mind that most are vintage items, which I strive to describe accurately and honestly. A very few smell of mothballs or a touch of vintage mustiness, most do not. This can be aired out and this can be speeded up by tumble drying the dry garment at warm. I usually mention it in the listing if one does but one must bear it in mind as a possibility when buying vintage and antique items.
    Please be aware that different monitors display colour slightly differently, so colour in photos is purely a guideline, as I can't foresee how your monitor will display it. While I try to describe colour sometimes, a description often conjours up one colour to one person but may suggest a different colour to another, so, again, colour description is just a guide to colour.
    I therefore don't accept returns or exchanges due to colour, taste, mothball/vintage smell or fit (which can be judged by measurements given)

    Japanese Haori Kimono Jackets - The Stylish, Japanese, Easy-Wear Option

    Japan's Secret Treasure

    A haori kimono jacket is an exquisite, easy to wear, traditional Japanese jacket that looks wonderful worn either casually with jeans or dressed up with evening wear. It's a long Japanese jacket, with deep, kimono style, swinging sleeves; always in lovely fabrics, often with lavish designs on the back. Men's haori have the sleeves attached most of the way down the body, like their kimonos do, and tend to be plainer on the outside than women's ones but men's often have exquisite designs on the lining. Haori kimono jackets, unlike kimonos, do not need a sash or obi; they are either worn open or loosely fastened at centre front with a himo tie but, although the Japanese don't wear them with a sash, they also look fabulous cinched in at the waist with a belt. Haori kimono jackets mix perfectly with western world style clothing, so are a great way of adding that touch of Japan to your wardrobe.

    Haoris seem to be a well kept Japanese secret. We, over here in the West, all know about their lovely kimonos but few have ever even heard of haoris and it was long after I started my kimono collecting that I discovered these jackets that the Japanese sometimes wear on top of their kimonos.

    I was focused only on kimonos, but eventually I bought a haori, just to see what it was like. From then on I was hooked. I love that I can now wear something so clearly Japanese with my everyday type clothing, something that's very striking and so different from what I see other people wearing. I think of them as one of Japan's secret treasures.
