Haori with yellow leaves

Here is another fun purchase that I have put off sharing. This lovely navy blue haori covered in yellow and gold leaves features embroidery accents on the back. Only three clusters of the reddish orange leaves have the added embroidery. The lining features karako (plump little children) and various stylized floral motifs. I'm not exactly sure what plants the leaves these are, but if I find out, I will post it here.

It's in virtually perfect condition and the buttery yellow color is warm and friendly! This will surely brighten up a navy iromuji or grey komon.
