#211 LIGHTWEIGHT BLACK SILK HAORI KIMONO WITH URUSHI FLORAL SCROLL DESIGN
A light silk haori, almost sheer, with metallic floral patterns which would be great for both casual and smart use. The 'urushi' yarns are made with metallic resins and this is a gorgeous example being of many colours. In addition, the crest on the back denotes it belonging to a samurai family. These are easily traced on the internet and add a lovely historical note to a vintage piece.
Measurements are to be found within the images but as a guide, most will easily fit up to a UK size 14 and some to a 16. You can check the measures against a jacket (or kimono!)you own and are happy with.
These are all pre-loved vintage items and will show some evidence of use - occasional
age spots or marks - although we try to choose the most wearable pieces which
are in good condition.
Clean fresh stains and spills with wipes and hang out to air. This should be enough.
Dry clean only as a last resort and NEVER wash. This will prolong the life of
your vintage item.
