Formal black vintage silk haori with a single paulownia mon (crest). Mon are family or clan crests and denote formality when used on a garment.
A lovely black rinzu (damask) silk with a woven all-over stylized large floraldesign, The haori is lined with a good quality cream silk rinzu with a cloud design and fastens with hand-braided off-white & red ombre silk ties.
Rinzu is a silk damask fabric in which a subtle, repeat satin pattern is woven onto a matte background. This would work perfectly as a glamorous evening cover-up, but equally well with a knee-length pencil skirt for work-wear.
Please note this is a vintage piece which has faint 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.
