Haori (jacket worn over kimono)
Silk, rayon (? lining)
Stenciled warps, hand tie-dyed wefts

Orizuru, or origami cranes, are a very popular pattern in Japanese textiles. The huge pattern size and bright colors of this haori probably date it to within a few years of 1920 – 1930.

Brightly colored, large-patterned shibori in contrasting colors was also popular during the period, as shown in the lining of this haori.
