Photos show examples only, your bundle will be different.
Gussets are the long and narrow slices of fabric found at the side seams of traditional vintage haori jackets (see last photo).
When we receive a haori that is damaged from age that can’t be sold for for wearing or display, we disassemble it and preserve the pieces.
Most are silk but synthetics are also possible especially when we accommodate your color preferences. No two gussets are exactly the same in width or length. Generally, widths are around 4” and lengths average 8” but are often longer. See photo with one-inch grid background to estimate the sizes.
