Michiyuki is a style women's haori. These are the outer most garments that are worn in traditional Japanese clothing. Ama are raincoats and are much longer.

This michiyuki is made entirely of a silk that is like taffeta, but not as stiff. It's not "rustley" like taffeta.

This particular michiyuki is a beautiful vibrant deep purple and black. It isn't lined, but it's got about 6 yards of fabric in it. It's stunning.

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 these on and they fit me in the arms and across the chest, but I'm a bit too curvy below the waist to wear them. I'm a size 18 and 5'8". This coat comes to below my calves, about 6 inches above my ankles.



It was sold to me as unworn and I believe that to be true. It is mint condition, with no stains or tears of any kind.

I have been buying kimonos from Japan and dismantling them for the fabric, but when I opened this package with this michiyuki I was just so overwhelmed at how beautiful it was that I really hate to take it apart. So I'm going to see if I sell it intact first.

From a now and forever smoke free, cat free household. I get these items from Japan and I have no knowledge of where or how they were stored, however. Sometimes they smell a little moth ballie as they have been stored. I take them out and air them for a few days. I have a dog, Bungee, but he's not allowed to handle the Kimonos.;-)
