One-of-a-Kind Vintage Soft Pink Silk Haori with Floral Motif
Item #26077
We regret that this item is not available at this time.
This hand-sewn, vintage haori was sourced from a Kyoto market or auction. A traditional Japanese hip- or thigh-length kimono jacket, this gorgeous, soft pink silk garment is graced with bouquets of chrysanthemums—on the front and more lavishly on the back and sleeves. (Chrysanthemums, or kiku, symbolize the Japanese monarchy, which is referred to as the Chrysanthemum Throne.) The puckered texture and chrysanthemum design were created with the shibori technique—a resist-dye process that involves stitching, folding, binding and clamping. The hidden stitches of the beautiful silk lining make this haori fully reversible. Haoris are designed with open fronts so that something of what is worn beneath is revealed. 100% silk. Made in Japan (circa 1950-1970). One-of-a-kind, any blemishes are likely permanent and are considered part of the vintage history of the haori.
Our Freer Gallery of Art curates an Edo-period porcelain figurine wearing a kimono and haori. Home to some of the world's most important holdings of Asian art, the Freer Gallery was donated to the nation by Charles Lang Freer.
Length, 30". Wrist to wrist, 48". High hip, 46". To freshen, simply valet the garment by hanging in fresh air in the shade. Due to the vintage nature of the fabric, hand washing or dry cleaning is not recommended.
