The Momiji Kimono Coat was crafted in the 1930-50s. “Michiyuki” is a coat type of kimono which is worn on top of long kimono and obi. The coat features a jacquard pattern called “Momiji” (maple leaves or acers), which represents longivety and positive change. The metallic jacquard effect is created by “urushi” plant extract – a natural resin used for Japanese lacquerware. The inside of the coat is fully lined and features a lovely red and white candy stripe pattern.
The square front design is typical Michiyuki style, to show the layered collars underneath the Michiyuki kimono. The front can be closed with hidden snap button, which is unlike the other kinds of kimono. Both silk sides are seamless and all hand sewn, it can be reversible. Although it is not the formal way but Japanese kimono lovers also wear haori inside out for fun or casual occasions.
