Urushi is a weaving technique where the pattern is woven into the fabric instead of being printed or painted on. This haori is a wonderful contrast between the beautiful black silk and the gold and silver and red thread and the flower designs. This is a stunningly beautiful and elegant jacket and perfect as a jacket for evening wear or a wedding.

Japanese clothing is made one size fits all. Now, one size fits all is probably not the same in Japan as it would be in the north America or Europe. I have tried this jacket on and it does not fit me. lol I'm a size 18 and it does not close across the front. I would say it's more of a size 8 to 12.
This one is 82 centimeters or 31 inches from the shoulder to the hem and 64 centimeters, or 24 inches from side seam to side seam.

This garment is exquisitely made. It is all sewn by hand. There are no exposed seams anywhere. It is like new condition, with no stains or tears of any kind. These are authentic Japanese traditional kimonos. They do not come with belts like a bathrobe, nor do they come in varying sizes.

I started importing these kimonos from Japan for the fabric, but most of them are in such perfect condition that it's really hard to get out the seam ripper. I decided to sell them complete, or many of them anyway.

I live in a smoke free, cat free home. I always hang kimonos in the fresh air for couple of days. I have no knowledge of what they were exposed to before I receive them. If they have a bit of a mothbally smell, hanging them out in the garage or outside for a while makes a huge difference

I try to represent the color as accurately as I can on my computer screen. Screens vary and I have no control over that.
