Itching for a beautiful haori to compliment your autumn wardrobe, or a kimono ideal for cooler weather? We are moving more and more away from summer friendly hot weather friendly kimono and goods towards autumn and winter worthy charming goods. This week there have been a number of haori added to the site, juban, and some delightful kimono. Some of you are fortunate enough to live in tropical settings such as Hawaii, and for those of you who are we are still listing new yukata to the site.
Haori are a popular choice for our customers as they are ideal gifts, and blend easily into any existing wardrobe. You do not need to pair your haori with a kimono, and can enjoy them with a shirt and pants combo for a very chic look. Much like our Japanese kimono, our haori are imported directly from small business in Japan, and the majority are vintage goods ready to wear. For those of you are faithful fans of luxurious silk, you will be delighted to know a number of the vintage haori we just listed are most likely silk. As always, be certain to check out the selection asap before it sells out.
When worn traditionally, haori are worn atop of Japanese kimono. Unlike modern coat styles haori are never meant to be closed in the front, and are designed to hang open. The reason for this being is that since haori are worn stop of kimono, you dont want to cover up and hide your beautiful kimono. However, if you want a coat to protect your kimono during travel or eating you should consider purchasing a michiyuki. Michiyuki are protective coats that do close in the front, and are ideal for wearing while travelling or even eating. Since the best way to clean a kimono is to not get it dirty in the first place, most modern michiyuki are made from an easy to care for synthetic fabric which is often machine washable.
