What is a Haori ?

A Haori , available at Yokai Streetwear, is a hip- or thigh-length kimono jacket and formal overcoat that originates from Japan. Both Japanese men and women wear Haori jackets over their kimono as a stylish addition to their attire. The term ‘Haori’ is derived from the word ‘haoru,’ which means ‘to put on’ in Japanese. Originally, Haori jackets were exclusively worn by noblemen, samurai, and warriors during the Sengoku period (16th century) to provide protection against cold weather. Over time, Haori jackets have evolved into a unisex garment, embraced by both men and women for their fashion-forward appeal.

History of Haori Jackets

Haori jackets have a rich history dating back to the 16th century. Initially, they were reserved for the elite class and male wearers, featuring plain colors like black, blue, or gray. Geisha, during the 18th century, popularized the colorful Haori jackets by wearing them over their kimono when attending social events and gatherings. As social norms changed during the Taisho period (1912-1926), women gained the freedom to wear Haori jackets, transforming them into popular attire for both genders during outings and special occasions.

Anatomy of the Haori Jacket

The Haori jacket resembles a shortened kimono top with a long torso section and rectangular sleeves attached with a straight seam. Unlike traditional kimonos, Haori jackets feature a narrower collar and torso, eliminating the need for overlapping front panels and decorative belts. Modern Haori are designed with shorter sleeve lengths and bodies that can be closed at the front using a simple knot.

Material and Designs of Haori

Traditional Haori jackets were crafted from delicate Japanese silk, known for its exquisite beauty but fragility. However, contemporary Haori jackets embrace various fabrics such as cotton, linen, wool, polyester, lace, gauze, and rayon. Men’s Haori jackets generally exhibit simple designs with plain colors like black or navy. In contrast, women’s Haori jackets offer a wider range of styles and designs, featuring colorful patterns inspired by flowers, animals, and other Japanese symbols.

Vintage vs. Modern Haori Jackets

Vintage Haori jackets are highly sought after, but can be quite expensive due to their craftsmanship and use of expensive silk fabric. These vintage pieces were often customized with hand-painted designs, resulting in prices that can reach thousands of dollars. On the other hand, modern Haori jackets are more affordable and focus on comfort, utilizing fabrics like cotton, satin silk, or linen. They are available in various lengths and colors, catering to different fashion preferences.

How to Wear and Care for a Haori Jacket

To wear a Haori jacket with a traditional Japanese kimono, simply put it on as an overcoat. The Haori is typically worn open and unbelted over a kimono, although it can be closed like a cardigan with the assistance of a Haori-himo, a long cord that ties around the waist. Haori jackets can be worn on numerous occasions, serving as a traditional overcoat for ceremonies or as a versatile jacket for daily outfits. When it comes to cleaning, non-silk Haori jackets made from materials like cotton, wool, or polyester can be machine washed at a maximum temperature of 30 °C. However, silk Haori jackets require more delicate care and are best entrusted to professional cleaning services.
