Japanese clothing is characterized by elegance and simplicity, as in perfectly illustrated by these two outer garments. The Haori (HOW-ree), although traditionally worn on formal occasions by men, is now most often seen on women layered over a kimono for street wear.
Folkwear's Haori is a thigh-length lined jacket sized for women. A straight front opening is finished by a neckband extending to the hem. Deep elbow-length curved sleeves are open next to the body. The front and back are cut with no shoulder seam; there is a narrow side panel below an underarm opening.
The Hapi is a shopcoat worn by storekeepers, craftsmen, and firemen over western-style clothes, and is sized for both men and women. Simple rectangles form the body, sleeves, neckband, and shoulder reinforcement for this unlined, fingertip-length garment. Our original is a firefighter's jacket; the rank of "Chief" is emblazoned on the back, while the front lists the name of the village, fire department, and rank.
Silk screen fabric printing techniques and designs are included to duplicate the firefighters' emblem and for a Folkwear flower design.
A pattern for the Tabi (fabric slipper-socks traditionally worn with sandals) is also included. The unique three-piece construction separates the large toe for a comfortable fit with thong-type footwear.
