Deep red long Haori kimono. This is a long jacket and as such very versatile.
The silk drapes beautifully and the golden pattern shines, it's a wonderful combination. The pattern is made by the traditional shibori method of resist dyeing technique.
The surprise is inside with the Karako lining, little figures of Chinese children playing, making a jolly contrast with the rather sophisticated outer.
The children symbolise joy and innocence.

The garment is in very good vintage condition.
There is one small (couple of my) stain on the bottom corner of one sleeve and another tiny one on the lining.
