Man’s Haori with Samurai Motif
Made of beautifully fluid black silk with a rich teal-colored satin silk lining, this formal man’s ‘haori’, or jacket, has a surprise inside: a handsome, richly woven depiction of samurai warriors on horseback. The images are on golden fan shapes and contrast nicely with the teal and gold. This is a wonderful example of ‘uramasari’, or the use of a colorful or fanciful lining, or undergarment, with an understated outergarment; most often this is a feature of men’s garments. We enjoy wearing these textiles with the lining on the outside, or displaying them on a wall. This is a vintage piece and is in excellent condition.
