This is a women's rinzu (figured satin) silk haori kimono jacket which has a soft and smooth touch in a good quality of silk with glamorous vivid red and green sasa no ha (bamboo leaf) design in gorgeous pale light purple. It is so-called ‘musou’ 無双 which means the lining is made of the same fabric as outer material.

It also has a elegant jacquard kiku (chrysanthemum) pattern. It is rather long for a haori which is typical of Taisho era (early 1900s) style.

It would be stunning to use as a jacket and also display as a wonderful piece of art for a room. Gloria is a fantastic antique piece.

It has certain wear and flaws including marks and small holes. The haori has been carefully patched in the centre back of the lining. I guess that the original owner of the haori loved it very much. I personally love the historical story of those items. Please check the detail photos and the 'Extra Images'.
