    Origin & Use of Haori

    During the Edo period, economic growth among the wealthy but lower-status merchant classes resulted in excess disposable income, much of which was spent on clothing. It was during this period that due to various dress edicts imposed by the ruling classes, Japanese merchant class men began to wear haori with simple outer patterns and richly decorated linings, a trend still seen in the haori for men today.

    Although originally the haori was only worn by men, in the early 1800s, geisha artists from the Fukagawa hanamachi in Tokyo began to wear the haori over their kimono. Fukagawa geisha, well known for their elegant and unusual fashion choices, started a trend that saw women wearing haori become commonplace in the 1930s.
