A black kimono haori, montsuki for men with family crest of Maeda feudal lord clan. This silk Kimono-montsuki is a masterpiece of art in itself. A finely handwoven Japanese nature scenery depicting a lion and a tiger in their natural habitat. The tiger is a symbol of bravery and dignity in Japan. Tigers are also thought to be effective in keeping away evil and bad energies. At the Kurama Temple in Kyoto, instead of the usual guardian lions, there are guardian tigers. Shishi or lions have magical powers to repel evil spirits. A pair of shishi traditionally stand guard outside the gates of Japanese temples (in China they are known as the foo/fu-dogs).

The art of embroidery on silk or other clothing is believed to bring nature’s beauty, wisdom, strength, good luck, and prosperity into people’s lives. You may want to opt for an interesting wall display. Haori is completely wearable, as well. Men's haori is suitable as "Japanese groom kimono".

All hand-made-hand-woven in pure, high quality Japanese silk. Japanese men's haori have no openings under the armpit. Obi is not worn with haori jackets so it is not included.

Measurements (please do not double): Back (flat): 25 inches (64 cm). Sleeve length: 20 inches (51 cm). Length (shoulder to hem): 41 inches (104 cm).

Condition: Excellent vintage. Commissioned in the Showa period. The item is pre-owned/loved and authentic. Completely wearable as a silk suit jacket.
