Vintage silk kimono jacket (haori) featuring a stylized pine needle design created with the traditional Japanese craft of shibori, an intricate form of tie-dye.
An attractive one-of-a kind design in graduated (bokashi) shades of pale terracotta with a white printed silk lining and pink & white ombre ties - perfect for dressing-up jeans for a sophisticated summer casual look.
Chuu hitta kanoko shibori is made by binding tiny sections of light-weight silk with thread to produce the design before dyeing. With chuu hitta kanoko the edges of the squares are not crisp and the circles in the middle are of varying size.
Please note this is a vintage piece which has light-coloured starch spots on the silk lining, but it is wearable for those that can appreciate its vintage nature as they are not visible when the jacket is being worn.
