VINTAGE MENS HAORI, Japanese Jacket, black silk, HANNYA NOH MASK lining

£79.00Price
  • This is a 1950-90s man's Haori jacket in black slub silk with an interesting lining which shows a Hannya Mask. 

    This is a mask used in Noh theatre which represents a jealous female demon. 

    However, the word Hannya in Japanese actually means “wisdom” and the masks themselves are considered a symbol of good luck. In Japan today, the masks are often used as a means of warding off evil.

     

    Haoris such as these are often worn inside out to show the lining, when at home or entertaining.
