    These beautiful, vintage Japanese kimonos and haori kimono jackets came from a website in the uk selling vintage and antique Japanese kimonos. (I got to keep the photos when I bought them as the clothes are one-offs). The green and yellow kimonos are about 1970s - 80s and the blue one is 1910s - 20s. I think the haoris (kimono sleeved, long jackets) are abot 1960s or so but not sure. I always wanted a kimono and I think these are the start of an obsession. I'm going to hang the green one, which was the most expensive one, on the wall but I wear the others.
    The textile art is amazing. I love the big parasols on the yellow kimono, which is a Japanese dancer's kimono, and the birds on the black haori. The blue kimono has a gorgeous red silk lining. They are all silk except the yellow kimono.
    The green kimono has lovely gold top stitching and very deep sleeves.
    I love the haoris because I can wear them out as long jackets over my normal clothes (can't really wear a kimono in public). The haoris are long, about mid thigh length, with great, swinging kimono sleaves. The brown one looks nice with a belt round it too. I think the Japanese wear them over kimonos. I really love the birds on the black one. I wondered about hanging it on the wall but I like wearing it. Definitely going to get more of the haori sometime.
