Natural coloured silk crêpe jacket (haori) in plain weave with a thick weft every two centimetres (three quarters of an inch), noticeable in close up. A little all over check design in olive, yellow, and red combines large and small squares joined at the corners by even smaller ones. There is a red dot in the centre of the large squares (perhaps a variation of the four-eye pattern). Sleeves and half body lined in softly separated pink, grey green, and pale yellow silk. There is a different section of lining at each shoulder, with floral designs in a muted palette of beige, grey and dark orange. Two ties (haori-himo) attached to interior lapels, made of off-white woven braid embroidered with red and gold thread in an arrow design.
