Beautiful Purple Kiri Haori
  • A gorgeous, deep purple, silk haori, with houou (phoenix), plant and geometric patterns in the weave and a kiri (paulownia) design in a mix of hand painted textile art and metallic embroidery. This haori is a real beauty. *NOTE* sashes not included, shown for display purposed only.
  • Kiri (paulownia), in Japanese folklore, is said to have the only branches that a phoenix will land on.
  • Any large white stitches on this haori are just shitsuke (large, loose, white, basting stitches). The Japanese put these in to keep the edges neat during storage; they are easy to remove and just get pulled out before wearing
  • Made and bought in Japan
  • In Japan, haori are not normally worn with a sash or belt, they are worn loosely, on top of a kimono and obi, but they also look great with a belt and with western world clothing
  • You can wear most lined haoris inside out, as they are so exquisitely made that all the seams are hidden both inside and out, and this lining would look fabulous worn on the outside.
  • Type: A Japanese haori, a long jacket, with swinging sleeves, traditionally worn over a Japanese kimono
  • Awase (fully lined)


Sleeve end to sleeve end 134cm
Sleeve seam to sleeve seam 67.5cm
Length 83.5cm

Japanese clothing is usually of adjustable fit, being mostly wrap-over or tie-to-fit items, so most garments fit a range of sizes. Because of this (and only really knowing my own size anyway) I can't really advise anyone on the fit. Please judge fit from the measurements given. Measure from centre back of neck, along shoulder and down the arm to the wrist, then double that and compare it with the sleeve end measurement to judge sleeve length.

  • Japanese haori; a long kimono jacket, with swinging kimono sleeves. Traditionally worn loose over kimono and obi, fastened with a front tie (haori himo) on centre front edge, but also lovely worn with contemporary clothing, such as jeans, skirts and dresses, either worn loose or cinched in with a belt or sash. So beautifully made, with hidden raw edges, that they can even be worn inside out, with the often beautifully decorative upper lining on show.

    Much more haori infornation can be found in the Kimono Information section of the website (page 13, "Haori Kimono Jackets - Japan's Secret Treasure"). Worth a read prior to puchase.
